London, Dec 31: Tech-giant Apple’s much-rumoured iWatch would use Intel chips and provide a new interface for the best-selling iPhone, Chinese news sites have claimed.
Apple is rumoured to be working on its own version of the iWatch, which uses the previous version of the iPod Nano
Chinese news site TGBUS reported that sources in the supply chain said “Apple is building” a device using Intel chips and new low-power Bluetooth technology.
A 1.5″ touchscreen would be used to control the phone, and Apple’s voice assistant Siri would also allow users to control the watch using voice commands, the news side said.
It also claimed that the device could launch within the next six months, the Telegraph reports
According to the paper, although similar Chinese news sites have sometimes provided indications of Apple’s intentions, they have seldom provided infallible information.
Meanwhile, Apple rival Google is already working on Glass, a headset with a screen that projects information from the Internet to add information to what the wearer can see.
The paper pointed out that Apple itself, however, has not previously been known to be interested in ‘wearable technology’, despite the popularity of fitness devices such as the Nike+Fuelband and Fitbit or Fitbug. (ANI)
