Apple Watch has a release date at last

28 January 2015

Remember the Apple Watch? Oh you must do. It was mentioned in passing around that Apple launch where U2 made massive tools of themselves.

Well, news has come that it will start shipping in April.

Tim Cook confirmed that it would be in April, having previously said that 'early 2015' was the time frame. 'Early 2015' usually suggests January in our minds, but we're not Apple.

The Apple CEO delivered details of the wearable's release during a quarterly earnings call with investors and the press.

If you recall, the Apple Watch will come in men's and women's sizes with a choice of six different straps which is quite nifty and could actually catch on - or at least, that's what Apple is hoping.

Cook had already gone on record to declare that users will use the device so much, that they'll be charging it up daily. Which is obviously good news for the planet. There's no actual price as yet, but early estimates of the original $349 (£230) mentioned back in the launch.

This follows the news that Apple posted the biggest profit ever, after selling 74.5 million iPhones in its fiscal first quarter. Revenue went up to $74.6 billion from $57.6 billion a year earlier.
