“According to Chinese site C Technology, Apple is planning to release its long-rumored iWatch alongside the next iPhone in October 2014, with the company having tested two iWatch prototypes,” Richard Padilla reports for MacRumors.
“The report also states that Apple has not decided on the final screen size of the device, with the prototype units being powered by a 100 mAh battery,” Padilla reports. “The iWatch is also said to include wireless charging capabilities which will allow the device to charge from up to a meter away.”
“A 100 mAh battery in the iWatch would roughly match the 105 mAh battery seen in the sixth-generation iPod nano that was designed in part to be able to be used as a watch,” Padilla reports. “iWatch reports have surfaced throughout the past few months, with Apple rumored to be releasing both 1.7 and 1.3-inch display sizes of the watch for men and women.”
