Apple CEO Tim Cook has revealed his company is ‘working hard to remedy’ the huge gap between supply and demand for the Apple Watch.
Cook was responding to questions during a conference call to discuss Apple’s latest barnstorming financial results, which saw it make a record January to March profit of $13.6 billion (£8.9 billion) and sell 61.2 million iPhones.
Cook said that Apple was ‘generally happy’ with how the launch had gone.
"It is a new product for us. With any new product, you wind up taking some time to fully ramp,” he added.
If Apple sticks to its current plans, he said the watch would go on sale in more countries by the end of June.
That is when most people who have already pre-ordered a watch are expected to receive their device.
Apple did not reveal any sales details regarding the watch during its conference call.
Reports have suggested it sold as many as 2.3 million units in its opening weekend.
There are already 3,500 apps available for the device in Apple’s dedicated Watch App Store.
