Apple iWatch and iPhone 6 rumours abound

16 December 2013

apple_logo_rainbow_6_color Over the weekend, rumours about Apple's iWatch have gone into overdrive, with suggestions saying that it'll hit the shelves in the second half of 2014. They're in no rush because the wearable technology that it already in the shops isn't exactly setting the world alight.

The iWatch could land in October 2014 and will be released alongside Apple’s next-gen phone - the iPhone 6.

The increasingly loud mutterings say that Apple are currently testing two iWatch prototypes. The prototypes have differently sized screens and it is being decided which one works and looks best. Apparently, the iWatch will feature a 100mAh battery and will utilise wireless charging capabilities, so that you can charge your device from up to 100 metres away, which is very fancy indeed.

This release date ties in with Apple's usual tactic of releasing new products in the build-up to Christmas and with this being the first entirely new product of Apple's in a while, excitement and demand will be high.

It has been suggested that this wireless charging could make its way into Apple’s other technology. It'll have to be good though because there's been criticism about Samsung's Galaxy Gear, which has a battery that only lasts for a day and you can't exactly wear a watch that is plugged into the mains.

    More overpriced iCrap ??? £100 says the iPhone 6 will have far fewer features and a smaller screen than many Android phones had 2 years ago....

    I call BS on the wireless charging from 100m. It would allow you to charge from any wireless charger nearby, pinching electricity from other people I'm also not sure that it is physically possible to send electricity that kind of distance without frying everything in it's path - like a lightning bolt.

    I'd love to see the size of a wireless induction transmitter that'll charge your devices 100m away.

    I imagine that the iWatch will feature some kind of kinetic rechargic capability. This will recharge in about 10 minutes as the owner masturbates himself blind over the iPhone 6.

    @klingelton: More like 2 seconds since most iPhone users are such complete wankers...

    I for one, welcome the iWatch. Now that 90% of phone and MP3 players come with white headphones, the iWatch will now be the easiest way to spot an Apple fanboi, and avoid them at all costs. At least, that's my take. Certain other members of society may say "the easiest way to spot an Apple fanboi, and mug them and leave them for dead." As I believe they used to do at the sight of a pair of white headphones...

    @ shakesheadsadly “the easiest way to spot an Apple fanboi, and mug them and leave them for dead.” - you say that like it's a bad thing, but you are forgetting they LIKE being mugged... how do you think they became Apple fanboys in the first place?
