Apple iWatch Launch Date Could Be Pushed Back

One of the many iWatch concept photos making the rounds online.

While it was originally rumored that the Apple iWatch could get an early fall launch date, a new report indicates it likely won't enter the market until November.
According to KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has been a reliable source for predicting Apple product plans in the past, the iWatch is believed to debut later than expected, due to complications related to both the new hardware and software.

“We have pushed back our estimated time of iWatch mass production from late-September to mid-/ late-November. We also lower our forecast of iWatch 2014 shipments by 40% to 3 million units,” said Kuo, according to AppleInsider.
Kuo told Apple Insider that the iWatch is presenting new difficulties for Apple, and consequently, believes production and distribution for the smartwatch will be deeper into the fall, like November.
The device is expected to come with a flexible AMOLED display with sapphire cover glass, marking the first time the company has integrated that type of display into a consumer product. Complications related to "operation circuitry" (and shrinking it down to smartwatch size), as well as making it a fully waterproof device and redesigning iOS to fit on a smaller screen, are big indicators that we might not see the iWatch for another few months.
