Apple Watch will reportedly begin production in January


Apple said last month its new smartwatch would launch “early” in 2015, failing to offer a specific date for consumers interested in handing over $350 for the company’s first attempt at a high-tech wrist-based wearable. A report Tuesday, however, suggests the Apple Watch could land later than expected, as mass production of the device will apparently not begin until January.

Apple has already previewed the Apple Watch at this month’s iPhone event and the unreleased wearable is currently on display in Paris’s Collette, but Apple hasn’t shared specific availability details for the Apple Watch beyond saying ‘early 2015′. A rumor from the Asian supply chain shared by Apple Daily (via GforGames) claims Quanta Computer out of Taiwan will kick off mass production for the Watch for Apple in January 2015… While early reports (and Apple executive hint dropping) made it seem Apple’s wearable device would be ready for retail by the holiday season, a recent report (matched with what 9to5Mac has heard) targeted Valentine’s Day, which takes place in mid-February, as an optimistic timeframe for launch.
