Apple’s iWatch is almost definitely coming on September 9th

Apple’s long-awaited wearable device, often referred to as the
iWatch, will debut alongside two new iPhones set to be unveiled on
September 9th. That’s according to a new report from Recode,
which also claims that the product will be deeply integrated with
Apple’s health tracking tools — coming as part of iOS 8 — and even tap
into home automation through HomeKit, another new feature of the
upcoming software. Rumors have long pointed to Apple’s wearable putting a
big focus on health, so that tidbit isn’t exactly a revelation.

But we’ve yet to truly see Apple’s grand vision for controlling
electronics throughout the home with HomeKit. At WWDC, the company
revealed that iPhones will be able to control garage door openers,
lights, security cameras, and other networked devices — all through iOS
without any need for extra apps or other tacked on software. Presumably
the wearable will share many of these capabilities. Daring Fireball’s John Gruber first floated the September 9th unveiling
earlier this month, but later indicated he was kidding and had “no
idea” whether Apple’s wearable is indeed coming on that date.

It feels like we’ve been talking about Apple’s smartwatch (or whatever form the wearable takes) for years now; the road to a new product category
has been long, but we’re finally coming up on the grand reveal. Apple
has yet to issue press invites for the rumored September 9th event, so
anything could change between now and then. But it sounds like the Apple
wearable is really happening in less than two weeks. After the iPod,
iPhone, and iPad, it’s nearly time for Apple to show the world its next
“revolutionary” product.
