In a pair of interviews with ABC News following Tuesday's big hardware debut, Apple CEO Tim Cook and SVP of Design Jony Ive discussed the trials and tribulations of designing the company's first wearable device.
At the conclusion of Tuesday's keynote presentation, Apple opened up the doors to a hands-on area built specifically for the event, where AppleInsider was able to get a first peek at at the new wearable Apple Watch.
Promising that the Apple Watch will "redefine what people expect from a watch," Apple showcased a wide variety of functions for its upcoming wearable device on Tuesday, including built-in fitness tracking, support for secure Apple Pay wireless transactions, and even a unique MagSafe-style inductive charging cable.
Promising it will be "worth the wait," Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook revealed on Tuesday that his company's upcoming smart wearable device, the Apple Watch, will go on sale in early 2015 with a starting price of $349.
Apple's hotly anticipated, highly secretive smart wrist watch was finally unveiled to the public on Tuesday in the form of Apple Watch, a device that the company said will define the emerging wearable devices market.
With less than 30 minutes to go until Apple reveals what secret products it's been working on, the tech news media has congregated in Cupertino, next to a giant mysterious white box, awaiting the big event. AppleInsider offers a quick peek at the scene as we count down to showtime.
Join us as we join Apple on Sept 9, 2014 for its "Wish We Could Say More" media event, in which the company is widely expected to unveil multiple "iPhone 6" models, preview its so-called "iWatch," and introduce a mobile payment platform backed by the industry's most respected players.
As Apple gears up for what at least one national news channel has called a "historic" announcement, the iPhone maker has re-added its own Special Events channel the Apple TV, providing interested consumers with another avenue for watching the event unfold live.
With Apple expected to announce its entrance into the wearable devices market on Tuesday, established smartwatch maker Metawatch is looking to differentiate itself from the rest of the herd with the new Meta M1.
A set of screenshots posted to social sharing site Reddit on Monday purport to show engineering drawings of parts destined for Apple's upcoming wearable device — including a speaker assembly, rectangular case, and round PCB — while the poster claims the device will be waterproof and ship in eight different SKUs.
With a large number of high profile fashion editors and bloggers invited to Apple's Sept. 9 media event, it's expected that the company wants to win the favor of the fashion industry for its anticipated entrance into the emerging wearable devices market, potentially positioning the "iWatch" as more of a chic statement than geeky gadget.
Less than one week before Apple is expected to announce a new iPhone, and possibly "iWatch," at a special event on Sept. 9, a report on Friday claims the company has inked partnerships with CVS and Walgreens for a rumored mobile payments system debut.
One of the biggest issues associated with color touchscreen smartwatches has been battery life, and the same problems may persist with Apple's first foray into the wrist-borne wearable devices market, according to a new report.
Apple's role as the top trendsetter in technology is so well established that even rival companies Samsung and LG are openly admitting they hope the "iWatch," whatever it actually is, will help expand the market for wearable devices beyond niche status.
Motorola has finally released its Android Wear-powered Moto 360 smartwatch — wisely or not, just days before Apple is expected to debut its "iWatch" — and early reviews say that the device is a fine standard bearer for Google's wearable operating system, though it could benefit from some more time in the lab.
In looking at the potential options for Apple in launching a mobile payment platform, one analyst believes the company is most likely to start small and safe with a "proxy" approach — a strategy that wouldn't make Apple much money, but would help lock users into the company's iPhone ecosystem.
Adding to rumors regarding Apple's supposed mobile payments solution, a report on Thursday claims the Cupertino tech giant has managed to negotiate lower transaction fees from five credit card issuing banks.
As hype builds for Apple's Sept. 9 announcement, yet another report chimes in with alleged details, saying the company's wearable "iWatch" will sport a flexible screen and wireless charging, while the company's larger iPhone models will apparently offer a one-handed mode for ease of use.
