THE FLASH

Apple Said to Unveil Its Wearable Device in October

iWatch out if I were you.

Apple is likely to unveil its wearable device in October at an event.

If someone said Apple is developing wearable hardware, a gasp would be the last sound heard. So it comes to no shock that an event is rumored to take place to unveil the long-awaited device. Apple recently detailed the iOS 8 app HealthKit and it’s very likely this device with use the app to its fullest.

Apple usually doesn’t wait too long after revealing hardware to release it, and according to Nikkei, the reveal and release will share the same month. The device is reported to have a curved OLED touchscreen and will make full use of tracking your health. Apple does seem confident in what most likely is the iWatch, with the company expected to ship 3 to 5 million units monthly says Nikkei’s source.

Many expected new hardware to be unveiled, specifically a wearable, at WWDC, but in reality the last hardware announcement The Big A made was the iPad Air and the iPad mini w/ Retina display back in October 2013, along with the Mac Pro and the new MacBook pros. Even Google raised the curtain on Android Wear, its OS for wearable devices. Apple is also in talks with Nike, which is possibly why Nike has shifted attention away from its very own Fuelband fitness tracker.

All rumors aside, expect both Apple and others to release smartwatches this year; it is the year of wearables afterall. And don’t worry, there will be early looks at these devices via leaks.

What features do you expect from Apple’s wearable device? Are you waiting for the Moto 360? Let us know in the comments below.
