Just because Apple has chosen not to have a presence at CES doesn’t mean there isn’t news popping up about its new products. First it was a report about a new MacBook Air, and now its a rumour that the Apple Watch could be hitting Apple Store shelves sometime in March.
According to a new report from 9to5Mac, the watch’s version of iOS has been finalised and Apple is preparing to initiate a massive training sessions to ensure that Apple employees know all about the new gadget. While we don’t have an exact release date, the report claims that the Apple Watch is currently set to be released during the month of March. So just about hitting Apple’s promised ‘Early 2015’ release.
Training of staff is a very clear indication that something is about to happen, and the training itself is reportedly taking place between the 9th and 16th of February. The only things that take place after that are releasing the full development kit to apps developers (apparently they can only create notification alerts at the moment), and having Tim Cook go on stage and actually launching the thing officially.
It might seem like March is way off at this point, but it really isn’t that long to wait and we should expect to hear quite a bit more in the coming weeks. If I had to guess a time for the official announcement I’d probably say to expect it around the end of February or start of March.
As always, we’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
