Analyst: Apple’s iWatch may not launch until late 2014, use biometrics and iPod nano tech

“KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has on a number of occasions offered accurate information about Apple’s product plans, issued a new research report this week outlining his expectations for Apple’s rumored smart watch device, informally dubbed ‘iWatch,'” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors. “Despite some expectations that the device could launch later this year, Kuo believes that both hardware and software issues will result in the iWatch making its debut in the second half of 2014.”

“On the hardware front, Kuo projects that the iWatch will use a 1.5-2.0 inch display and unsurprisingly believes that Apple will draw on the iPod nano when it comes to components, particularly with respect to the main processor and the touch technology,” Slivka reports. “Further, Kuo believes that biometrics will be a key feature for the iWatch, allowing for increased security and opening the door to broader health-related applications.”

  1. My guess is:

    Fall 2013 – iPhone 5S, new iPad, new iPad mini, new Mac Pro speed bumps all around.

    Spring 2014 – mostly quiet, iPad speed bumps

    Summer 2014 – iWatch around WWDC, iOS 8, OS 11, iPhone 6

    Fall 2014 – Apple TV 4K, new iPad, new mini, speed bumps all around

    1. If what you say is true Apple Stock will drop to 200 despite sales. Investors will be really unimpressed if all that happens this year is more of the same. Making IPAD4 look like Ipad mini, Changing facepaint of IOS, speed bump? If this is all they have to offer don’t even bother with a press event. Just post these updates stuff on the website.
