Following issuing updates to its two flagship smartphones – last month, Samsung has this week unveiled its seventh iteration of its wearable in the form of the Gear S2.
Apple Watch can make doing a whole number of everyday tasks a lot more convenient. Unfortunately, though, it can also be used for other various activities that would not be looked upon lightly by certain establishments.
Ahead of the device becoming available for in-store purchase – next month, Apple Watch stock that has been manufactured for eventual sale through Apple’s own stores has now (reportedly) begun to arrive at the company’s various retail locations, throughout the U.S.
The best way to sell something is to get those for whom the masses idolise to directly (or indirectly) endorse it … and that’s exactly what Apple is doing.
Originally aiming to have around 1,000 apps available for new users of the smartwatch upon its launch – on April 24, Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed during the company’s latest earnings call that the firm had literally smashed through that figure, highlighting that the App Store designed for Apple Watch is now home to 3,500+ offerings.
As reports from around the world flood in from those who are still yet to receive their Apple Watch, new data now suggests that just 22-percent (376,000 units) of the estimated 957,000 units of the smartwatch, that are thought to have been pre-ordered on April 10 – were actually delivered to customers over the weekend.
Apple – who is in the midst of fully preparing to launch its long-anticipated wearable, tomorrow – appears to have taken a dislike to at least some iOS developers out there who are trying to get apps that connect with other smartwatch platforms, approved for download or sale on the iTunes App Store.
Some might still have reservations over what the Apple Watch‘s purpose actually is – but that hasn’t stopped Apple’s carefully-crafted wrist top slab of gorgeous from winning a variety of design awards leading up to its retail debut.
