iwatch mock up huge

Apple will not start mass producing its much–hyped iWatch until November, delaying the predicted release of the smart watch. Analyst Ming Chi Kuo has said that the manufacturing process appears to be more difficult than expected, hence Apple has shifted production back.

Kuo is renowned for his spot–on Apple analysis, so it’s likely there is an element of truth in his prediction. Other analysts have previously claimed that Apple would be starting to produce the iWatch in large quantities this month, with a view to launching the product in October.

That could still happen, but consumers would then have to wait to lay their hands on the timepiece. If that is the case, Apple will face a race against time to have the iWatch ready by Christmas, or face losing out to rivals.

Delays are said to be caused by the device requiring more stringent waterproof protection than the iPhone and iPad, as well as struggles to implement a curved screen design which also features a sapphire coating.

Just this week, it was revealed that Apple had hired more staff from Nike’s Fuelband division, as well as a senior executive from TAG Heuer. All are believed to be working on the iWatch project.
