Apple Will Start iWatch Production In 2Q14; Wistron Is Third OEM [Rumor]

  • December 18, 2013

The not so reliable tech blog Digitmes is reporting that Apple ‘will‘ start production of a smartwatch device in the second quarter of 2014. I purposely emphasised the use of the word “will” is the previous sentence to highlight that this report should be taken a pinch of salt. No one knows Apple’s product roadmap outside 1 Infinite Loop HQ.

The report claimed that Quanta Computer and Inventec have already been earmarked as supplier of the iWatch device. However, Wistron is believed to be in contention to become the third original equipment manufacturer (OEM), according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers.

Apple is widely expected to announce the iWatch device along with the next-generation iPhones in October 2014. The iWatch will reportedly support wireless charging and sport an 1.3-inch and 1.7-inch OLED display.

In other newsSteve Symington writing for Motley Fool, suggests that Apple may use OLED display from Universal Display in their iWatch device.
