A story emerged yesterday that said that Apple would launch its first wearable alongside the iPhone 6 in just over a week's time. We held off on this one because there have been so many twists and turns in the iWatch saga, but the rumour is gathering pace as more sources are found. Indeed, I spoke to my own "guy" in Apple and while he could not or did not want to confirm the iWatch is imminent, he did say the iPhone 6 event has a big surprise in store.Of course, my source could be talking about the iPhone phablet, the 5.5-inch version of Cupertino's smartphone. However, considering how that device has been much talked about and is widely predicted to be launched, I think he means something else. There are certainly more reports coming that suggest that iWatch will be rolled out alongside the iPhone 6. That would make plenty of sense from a hardware perspective as it is almost certain that the iWatch would rely heavily on the iPhone, much the same way that all smartwatches are merely smartphone companions. Launching the wearable after the handset is possible, but Apple would make much more of an impact rolling them out together. Apple has sent invites for a press event on September 9th, so we will be sure to bring you all the news from the launch. And even if there is no iWatch after-all, there is still plenty to look forward to with possibly two new iPhone variants on the way. source: Bloomberg
