Foxconn is Trial Manufacturing Apple Upcoming iWatch

With Apple’s “iWatch” likely to release this year, we’re starting to hear rumors about components being cobbled together just before the company starts ramping up production of the device. The latest news came in from Taiwan media Economic Times, Foxconn has received 1000 trial products of the iWatch from Apple. The Curpertino company is looking into using 1.5-inch display panels for its upcoming smartwatch. Early rumors claimed that iWatch would have a 1.8-inch display, so it seems that Apple may be thinking of reducing the device’s size to make it look good on your wrist. The displays are being manufactured by the organic EL panel maker RiTdisplay of Taiwan with touch sensors integrated right into the display, rather than there being a separate multitouch layer. The new iWatch is using bluetooth connection, so we believe it’s able to scyn data and info from iPhone and iPad. The news also pointed out that Apple will be released the iPhone 6 first (not iPhone 5s ? ), no release schedule for the iWatch yet.
