Far from being some experiment in madness conducted by one or two dungeon-based Cupertino nutcases, we’re told that Apple has - in fact - a significantly large team working on the iWatch.
That’s the good word according to Bloomberg, crediting “two people familiar with the company’s plans”.
Specifically we’re told: “Apple has a team of about 100 product designers working on a wristwatch-like device that may perform some of the tasks now handled by the iPhone and iPad”.
The Apple iWatch is expected to run iOS in some capacity, perhaps with Siri functionality allowing you to say things to your wrist like you’re living in a sci-fi movie. "iWatch, call Stuhlmacher".
Other Apple iWatch features may or may not include a Maps app (probably Apple Maps by default, but preferably with Google Maps as an alternative), and it’d make sense if it were waterproof. Am I the first guy to propose resistance to H2O? You heard it here first.
While not exactly a new concept, we expect the Apple iWatch will make people wonder how they ever survived without a smartphone watch. Y'know, like how the iPad really got the tablet ball rolling.
