Apple TV is the next big thing, but recent rumor epidemic is on iWatch, a wearable smartwatch made with curved glass material. And it is pulling all the strings for a next era in technological advancement.
As reported by the New York Times, Apple was believed to be developing iWatch based on their iOS platform. Sources hadn’t had any information about the sole purpose of the device, so the technology sites all around have been making speculations.
