Rumor: Apple iWatch Faces Delay Over Screen Technology And Battery Issues

CNET (via The Information) is reporting that Apple’s iWatch project is facing a few setbacks but nothing significant to delay a launch, widely expected to be in 2014.

According to the report, Apple is yet to decide on what kind of screen technology to use due to battery issues.  Apple has also “halted advanced prototyping of some unknown pieces with one manufacturer late last year,” the report said.

“There’s been talk of a purported iWatch for about a year now, yet no conclusive signs of any device have appeared,” Dara Kerr reports for CNET. “In October it was rumored that LG Display was close to signing a deal with Apple to provide flexible organic light-emitting diode panels (OLED) for its iWatch. It was also said that Apple was talking to Taiwan-based RiTDisplay.”

Interestingly, CNET said that they contacted Apple for comment and will be updating the story when they get more information. Good luck with that one!
