Apple rumored to be working on wristwatch, iWatch maybe?


Apple the Cupertino tech giant is working on a prototype for a wearable watch-type gadget that might extend some of the powers of the iPhone onto an accessory strapped to your arm.

This isn’t the first time the watch rumor has surfaced. According toe the reports by both Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, Apple is in discussions with Foxconn, its primary manufacturing partner, to come up with a wrist watch-type of tech gadget. Possibly an iWatch.

Apple is still selling tons of iPhones but seeing its high margins contract, this would be a logical response to a changing smartphone marketplace.

People familiar with the company’s explorations, who spoke on condition they are not named as they are not allowed to publicly discuss unreleased products said the watch would operate Apple’s iOS software and stand apart from competitors based on the company’s understanding of how such glass can curve around the human body.

Apple could be looking at a far more sophisticated device that could incorporate many of the same apps we now enjoy on their smartphones and tablets.
