Rumour: Apple Watch to be Released in March
Ryan Simmons / 3 years ago
In what is a highly credible rumour from 9to5Mac, it appears that Apple is gearing up to release the Apple Watch in March. They say that retail employees will begin training for the new device soon.
“One or two representatives from many Apple Stores in the United States, depending on store and market size, will be sent to Apple offices in either Cupertino, California or Austin, Texas to learn first-hand about the Watch. These training programs will take place between February 9th and February 16th.”
Rumours concerning designs of new products are always questionable due to there being so few people in on such projects, but Apple retail is an organisation extraordinarily large with many employees – meaning it is easy for information like this to slip out.
Apple is still posting an “Early 2015” launch date on its website in the US, with just “2015” everywhere else. While it’s a possibility that it could launch in other countries later, this seems unlikely for countries like the UK, Australia, Canada and Europe as Apple’s supply chain is now so efficient that it should be easy for them to launch in multiple countries on day one.
