Apple’s ‘iWatch’ Rumored to Run Full iOS
Posted on March 4, 2013 by eli courey
Apple is planning on running a full version of iOS on the rumored iWatch, according to a report from The Verge.
Interestingly, we’re also told that Apple’s chosen to rework the full iOS to run on the watch instead of building up the iPod nano’s proprietary touch operating system — although the previous nano was already watch-sized and seemed like a great starting point for a watch, Apple’s betting on iOS across product lines.
Bloomberg also reported on an Apple smartwatch, saying it could come as soon as this year.
Features under consideration include letting users make calls, see the identity of incoming callers and check map coordinates, said one of the people, who asked not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. It would also house a pedometer for counting steps and sensors for monitoring health-related data, such as heart rates, this person said.
