Apple will unveil a wearable computing device on Sept. 9, according to a Re/code’s John Paczkowski.
The so-called iWatch will debut alongside the iPhone 6, which is also expected to be unveiled that day with two screen sizes: 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches. (The iPhone 5S has a 4-inch screen.)
Paczkowski had previously reported that the iWatch might come out in October, but it appears Apple has bumped up its plans.
Apple’s wearable will likely have HealthKit and HomeKit integration, enabling users to track their health and fitness and use the wearable to control other smart devices at home.
Apple hasn’t yet sent out invites to the Sept. 9 event. It usually announces product launches about a week before they happen.
If any company could lead us into digital nirvana, it’s Apple.
But next to no one knows what that future looks like.
We recently talked about Apple’s future with a former employee, and he pointed us to this video by Corning. (Corning makes the glass used in iPhones and iPads.)
Corning may make glass and ceramics, but its conceptual videos paint a vivid picture of what an Apple-dominated future might look like.
If anything is clear from Corning’s video, it’s that tech consumers have a lot to look forward to. Smart devices have only begun to enter our cars and homes.
And that’s just the beginning of what the future has in store.
