Rumors of Cupertino’s upcoming wearable is spreading like a wildfire, speculated to be one of the most significant wearable accessories to hit the market this year and as trademarking efforts by Apple heighten, we know that the iWatch is upon us.
Rumours of an Apple smartwatch, supposedly called the Apple iWatch, have been circulating for months with several patents over the years showing off what the company might be working on, but until now it has all just been hear say.
Despite Apple seemingly fading into the background as all of their competitors take the spotlight, the company is still there and may be preparing some game changing products for the near future, at least that is what Tim Cook’s interview with All Things Digital has hinted towards.
Scrolling through recent patents from the Cupertino giant, I came across an interesting one; a patent describing a secondary wearable device that connects to your primary device to process voice commands and access a wide range of services. What makes it interesting is the mention of it being a wrist watch.
Apple has been granted a patent detailing augmented reality technology and some new innovations from the company. The patent for “Synchronized, interactive augmented reality displays for multifunction devices” was applied for back in 2010 and may be the key to Apple’s next generation of innovative products.
With all the recent rumours flying around regarding Apple’s supposed iWatch, a smart watch that is said to be a ‘second screen’ for current iDevices, eyes have turned to Samsung and other manufacturers to see if they would follow suit. Several weeks ago screenshots leaked of a supposed Samsung smart watch called the Samsung Galaxy Altius, not much info was provided on it though, but today new information emerged.
