No iWatch Until The End Of The Year

According to Taiwanese Newspaper UDN, longtime Apple supplier TPK is running behind schedule for iWatch production. The news was interpreted from earnings call of TPK holdings where there was no direct mention of iWatch. TPK has projected a drop-in/flat revenue for the current quarter and an increase in profits during Q4 2014, suggesting the company is going into production schedule for the iWatch this quarter and rollout by the end of this year.

TPK is an old supplier of touch components, like the screen for Apple’s iPhones and iPads. For the iWatch screen, TPK will use the silver nanowire touch modules that are flexible and don’t require additional sensors to register touches.

Earlier there were reports about Apple’s iWatch being launched with the iPhone 6 in September, then came news about October launch, both of which now seem improbable.
