Following KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo’s report of a 2015 iWatch delay, more suppliers are preaching similar claims, citing production issues as the source. Today’s report comes from Taiwanese paper Economic Daily News. The paper cites the same issue as Kuo, which is that Apple is having issues finalizing hardware and software. On top of that, because of the product category being so new and hardly explored by the major manufactures yet, Apple wants to ensure they’re making the best smartwatch with the best user experience possible.
Previous reports have stated initial iWatch production numbers will be low, so it looks as if Apple is not willing to rush out the product announcement and then run the risk of barely having any units to ship. A 2015 launch makes the most sense considering the already crowded product lineup we expect to see revealed September 9th. Between three new iPhones, two iPads, and maybe even updated Macs, Apple’s holiday season lineup is looking stronger than ever, even without a fancy wristwatch to go along with it.
