Apple CEO Tim Cook today announced that the Apple Watch is on schedule to begin shipping in April, not March like previous rumors have suggested. The announcement came during the company's Q1 2015 earnings call. Cook did not give a specific date for the watch's release, or shed more light on pricing.
Apple announced its new wearable device on September 9, 2014 during its iPhone 6 keynote at the Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino, California. The watch will be available in two sizes and 34 models spread out through three collections, starting at $349 for the most basic model. It will support Apple Pay, iMessage, SMS Texts and Apple's Health app when it is paired with an iPhone. The Apple Watch will be compatible with the iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
