A few minutes ago during Apple's earning call, when the company revealed how it had sold a total of 74.1 million iPhones, Tim Cook also gave us a little update on another highly anticipated iDevice, saying the the long-awaited Apple Watch will actually ship sometime in April.
At the moment, there's no official announcement -- no press release, and certainly no information specific to Australia -- but Cook's statement suggests that if the Apple Watch is scheduled to be on store shelves in April in the US, we shouldn't be too far behind.
This is a slight delay from the rumors we've heard that the Apple Watch would be shipping in March, but we're going to assume that the Cupertino CEO knows what he's talking about. Also those rumors mentioned that it would "launch" in March and Cook is talking about shipping, so you know, details.
The Apple Watch lost a little luster last week when a report from 9to5Mac said that the Apple Watch would only last around 2.5 hours under heavy use, suggesting that Apple hadn't solved smartwatches' biggest problem—battery life. But there's still considerable excitement around Apple's first wearable. And now we know roughly when we'll find out if it lives up to the hype.
