The famed Apple iWatch has been rumored for many months now, and it may have finally been confirmed.
The news comes from an Apple employee interviewed by the New York Times, who informs us that indeed an iWatch is being worked on, but mainly by Jony Ive and a few other designers, with Apple CEO Tim Cook not involving himself directly with the project:
They point to the development of the so-called iWatch — the “smartwatch” that Apple observers are eagerly awaiting as the next world-beating gadget. Mr. Cook is less involved in the minutiae of product engineering for the watch, and has instead delegated those duties to members of his executive cabinet, including Mr. Ive..
As expected, Apple declined to comment.
By now it is pretty much confirmed that the iWatch is being worked on by Apple, but there is no confirmation if it will be released this October, or even this year for that matter.
We’ll let you know as we get more.
