“It had been quite some time since the last major launch by Apple. We’ve had updated iPhones and iPads, but these are minor compared to entirely new devices. Which was probably why the buzz around the rumoured ‘iWatch’ was so big,” The Telegraph reports. “It was beaten by a host of other companies who had long ago launched smartwatches, but Apple has a history of entering markets late and then totally redefining and dominating them.”
“The Watch will come in three models and two different sizes, and will integrate with the iPhone to offer a range of apps and features. It will even be able to pay for goods and services with a tap via Apple’s Pay system,” The Telegraph reports. “Sadly, for those who were impressed by the unveiling and hoped to get one for Christmas, it won’t go on sale until February 2015.”
