We recently heard that less than half of early iWatch units produced were up to scratch, though we digested the story with a healthy side of skepticism (no offence, DigiTimes).
Similarly, news has emerged of a trio of iWatch problems, though even if the rumours are on the money, it doesn’t exactly sound like the end of the world "TBH".
The story comes from Jessica Lessin’s subscription-only The Information (relayed for free by countless other publications, naturally, including Business Insider), which appears to be desperately trying to carve a name for itself in the world of tech journalism.
For starters, we’re told that the Apple iWatch is encountering battery problems, and resultantly the Californians are experimenting with different screen technologies. Fairly standard procedure, no?
Next, Apple is said to have "halted advanced prototyping of some unknown pieces with one manufacturer late last year". Even Lovely Lessin concedes that that’s not exactly blockbuster news.
Finally, former iPod guy Bryan James has jumped ship, and he’s supposedly listed on a number of iPatents, including one for – you guessed it – a “watch-like device”. Ok, that might prove irksome. Maybe.
Again, not the end of the world, and as I’ve mentioned before, it’s tradition for any new iDevice release to be accompanied by rumours of production problems. Now let's all go back to bed.
