Apple iWatch with flexible AMOLED display hitting mass production in November [Report]
All the Apple products are prone to various rumors and the alleged iWatch is no exception. The iWatch has been in the rumor mill for quite some time now and a new report suggests that the Apple smartwatch will go into mass production in November.
The report comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has proved very reliable in the past when it comes to Apple news. According to him, the iWatch will hit mass production in November.
Kou says in his report, “We have pushed back our estimated time of iWatch mass production from late-September to mid or late-November. We also lower our forecast of iWatch 2014 shipments by 40% to 3mn unit.”
He also enlists the four major features of the iWatch. According to him, the Apple iWatch will come with a flexible AMOLED display, a Sapphire display cover, tougher waterproof standards and new system-on-chip parts.
The iWatch was first scheduled to hit mass production in late September but there has been a delay. According to the report, the new challenging hardware and software issues are the reasons for the delay.
While the iWatch seems to have been delayed, it is apparently still scheduled to hit the stores by the end of the year.
