There isn’t a day that passes without plenty of new information about the upcoming Apple which will take place in Cupertino tomorrow.
The company is expected to release the new iPhone 6 and the iWatch. When it comes to the iPhone 6, we have seen a number of videos and images leaked already so it seems the round design and the two models, 4.7″ and 5.5″ will are set and no surprises can be expected on that side. We wouldn’t be surprised though if Apple has a few OS / software features to surprise us. The only big thing that has come out in regards to that is the mobile payment system iPhone Wallet for which the company has teamed up with American Express, Visa and MasterCard.
So a day before the launch, another video has surfaced. This time it is supposed to be a model straight from the factory.
The video once again shows the 4.7″ model, so were we right when we reported back in July that the 5.5″ version could be delayed until 2015? We will have to wait until tomorrow to get confirmation on that.
So while it feels like the iPhone 6 has already launched since we have so much information on the device, close to nothing has leaked in regards to the iWatch.
The smartwatch market is probably the hottest segment at the moment. In the last few weeks we have seen Samsung, LG and Asus all showcase their latest device. Most recently Motorola officially announced the most anticipated smartwatch to date, the Moto 360. You can find a detailed comparison here.
So the question will be: Can Apple come out and challenge all the other brands with their first new product launch in four years? They have the ecosystem to do so, all they really need to get right is the design and be on par or slightly superior on the feature set. Analysts certainly are positive as they predict the iWatch could sell as many as 60 million units in the first year alone.
