Apple patents curved battery: space saving for iWatch

Apple patents curved battery: space saving for iWatch

Now that Tim Cook has effectively paved the way - without saying so - for Apple to create wearable devices in the near or distant future, the appearance of a so-called "curved battery" in the US Patent office isn't all that much of a surprise. While it's not a guarantee of any bit or piece of technology using this battery any time soon - Apple often patents technology without using it, ever - it does open some rather interesting miniature doors of possibility.

iWatch concept is what the iWatch should be

iWatch concept is what the iWatch should be

A new concept has been released for Apple's pending iWatch accessory, and we've got to say, it looks pretty acceptable. The concept was created by MacUser Magazine, and it shows a mini iPad mini plastered onto a leather band. The design is supposed to emphasize a conventional iWatch that's also stylish. While I do like the look of the iPad mini-esque display, I would much prefer a black band to a brown band.

Every week it seems like we have another new rumor from "sources familiar with Apple's plans" claiming that the company is getting ready to launch a watch of one sort or another.

One analyst believes that Apple will probably get into the watch market before the TV market.

The iCompanion wearable: there is no iWatch

The iCompanion wearable: there is no iWatch

If you're thinking that today's big announcement from "unnamed sources familiar with the matter" surrounding the so-called "iWatch" is simply an expansion of what we've seen in the past with the iPods of old, you're sorely mistaken. Instead the only possible course of action Apple will be considering is one in which they open up another new category of device. If Apple cannot create what I'm about describe as the "iCompanion", their supposed "100 product designers working on a wristwatch-like device" won't deliver a market-ready device.

We've been hearing about a lot of buzz about a possible new smartwatch coming straight out of Cupertino.

Would You Really Want to Wear the iWatch?

Everywhere tech fans turn lately, they’ve been hearing rumors about Apple’s plan to launch a smartwatch that could eventually be known as iWatch. That device, the reports say, is being handled by a team of more than 100 people charged with getting the company’s wearable tech to the marketplace.

As with other Apple rumors, the iWatch is exciting the company’s fans. Surely Apple has something great up its sleeve with the watch, those fans might say. Others are already predicting that they’ll buy one and wear it each day, and before long, just about everyone else will, too. The iWatch has somehow joined the pantheon of Apple greats, like the iPod and iPhone, before it’s even launched.

If Apple does iWatch, is Samsung’s Galaxy Watch far behind?

If Apple does iWatch, is Samsung’s Galaxy Watch far behind?

Apple and Samsung already dominate the smartphone market, but the smartwatch industry could be the next in line for a wrist-worn tech attack, judging by "iWatch" and "Project J" rumors. Talk of an Apple alternative to Pebble and other wearables has surged in the past week, with a 100-person team tipped to be collaborating on a curved glass digital timepiece that would work as a companion to your iPhone. However, the Cupertino smartwatch crew is unlikely to be alone in its second-screen ambitions, with Samsung likely also on the case.

A Siri iWatch could dominate wearables

A Siri iWatch could dominate wearables

Oh, the irony: tech manufacturers by the dozen attempting to dissuade you from pulling an iPhone from your pocket, and it might be Apple that actually manages it. That's not to say the Cupertino giant - or the rumored "iWatch" - is aiming to replace the iPhone, only leave it snug in your jacket or purse more of the time by shunting glanceable functionality to your wrist. It's a strategy we've seen several other manufacturers (most notably Pebble, currently glowing rosily from its multi-million Kickstarter success) try, but there are some very good reasons why Apple could be the firm to take the smartwatch mass-market.
