The Apple Watch will begin shipping in April, Tim Cook has confirmed.
Speaking this evening in an earnings conference call, the CEO confirmed that the company’s long-awaited first wearable device will be available a couple of months from now. No further details were announced.
Last month it was reported that Apple were struggling to reach targets with the battery life of the watch, with speculation that it would last up to 19 hours, as long as the majority of that time was spent with the watch in standby mode or off.
Industry analysts originally predicted a March release for the device, so it is possible that Apple have delayed the release to work on improving the battery life issues.
The Apple Watch will have a starting price of $349, with UK release and pricing yet to be announced.
