Sit tight, fanbois. Apple's '$400' wearable release slips into early 2015

Sources: time to put in plenty of clock-watching for' iWatch

Apple will reportedly not unleash a wearable device at Cupertino's iPhone 6 event on 9 September. And - when the iWatch does arrive - rumours suggest it could carry a $400 price tag.

It apparently means fanbois will have a longer than expected wait for the iWatch, which according to Re/Code - citing secret sources - involves Apple consumers having to impatiently keep checking their pocket watches for an announcement until some time early in the New Year.

"It's not shipping anytime soon," one insider told the tech blog.

So it looks as though tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo – renowned for the accuracy of his Apple predictions – was bang on the money with his claim that Apple doesn't have the production prowess to release the wearable device this year.

In a separate post, Re/Code cited sources saying Apple planned to slap a range of prices on its iWatch, depending on the model. Apparently Cupertino execs have considered charging about $400 for the wearable, but prices are yet to be agreed upon.

Tough luck, fanbois, seems as though you now have to rethink those Christmas lists. ®
