The rumors surrounding a possible iWatch are starting to hit fever pitch. Earlier in the week, The Wall Street Journal and the New York Times claimed to have knowledge of its existence and now Bloomberg has added to those rumors. According to “two people familiar with the company’s plans”, Apple has a team of over 100 designers working on the device.
The team, which has grown in the past year, includes managers, members of the marketing group, and software and hardware engineers who previously worked on the iPhone and iPad, said the people, who asked not to be named because the plans are private. The team’s size suggests Apple is beyond the experimentation phase in its development, said the people.
As the saying goes, there is no smoke without fire and there is certainly a lot of smoke hanging around when it comes to the iWatch rumor. Apple will have to pull off something pretty spectacular if the rumoured iWatch is to become a hugely popular product. The idea of running iOS on a tiny screen doesn’t appeal to me all that much however until we know exactly what Apple is working on, it’s too soon to comment. If it looks anything like the concept image above then it could be massively appealing!
