Rumors, we got hot and tasty fresh rumors stewing in the pot for you this week. So many leaks and speculation and unnamed sources. Some of them are probably right, but which ones? Ah, that's the trick. See if you can spot the plausible ones. (Photo by Apfel Page Concept Design.)
Last month we reported that L.A. Lakers basketball star Kobe Bryant had been seen hanging around Apple's offices in Cupertino, and at the time we speculated that he was in town to discuss endorsement deals regarding the rumored "iWatch." But a new report from 9to5Mac claims that he and other athletes from the NBA, NHL, and MLB have instead been visiting Tim Cook and friends to test the fitness capabilities of Apple's long-anticipated wearable tech.
Apparently, the iPhone 6 rumor mill has run dry: No sooner does another report on Apple's fabled iWatch surface Thursday night, than two others pop up offering even more details on how Cupertino might dominate the wrist.
Looks like the "iWatch" is going to be a real thing after all. After more than a year of speculation and occasionally outlandish rumors, Apple is apparently going to start production on the fabled device next month, reports Reuters. Allegedly, we'll actually see it in October. Based on the additional information in the report, the device will look only slightly like some of the more popular works of concept art we've seen.
Apple didn't mention anything about the fabled iWatch during this year's Worldwide Developers Conference, but a new report from Japan's Nikkei suggests that the device is still in the works. In fact, according to its sources, we'll see it in October. Nikkei has an unusually good track record regarding these things, so there might be some truth to these claims after all.
The folks in Cupertino appear to be trolling those who criticize them for leaving the rumored iWatch out of this year's WWDC keynote, with a new commercial focusing on how the iPhone 5s works with fitness and health apps.
With WWDC 2014 right around the weekend corner (literally), heck no you don't want to shut your computer down. Why, this week's news is chock full of rumor, leak, speculation, and the ravings of analysts. Ahem, we mean the well thought out considerations of those with virtually no evidence. On with the show!
As WWDC 2014 quickly approaches, the rumor mill has turned to an iMac refresh and other idle speculation in recent days, mostly jumping off the so-called "iWatch" bandwagon — a brief reprieve that ends right about now.
It's almost time for the bulk of the latest batch of Apple rumors to end (and if the past few years have proved anything, it's almost time for a whole new set to begin). Apple today released its schedule for the upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference and announced that it plans to hold its keynote on Monday, June 2 at the Moscone West convention center in San Francisco.
Famed Los Angeles Lakers player Kobe Bryant and his wife Vanessa were spotted at Apple's campus in Cupertino today, and the report suggests that the basketball star might have been there to speak about the iWatch. An informant claims that Bryant was in town to speak with Jony Ive's team about "upcoming projects."
