Mar 12 2015
Happy Monday! Buckle up, because it’s Apple news all the way down today. The highly anticipated Apple Watch goes on sale April 24th and depending on the model, prices start anywhere from $350 to $10,000. The Cupertino company also surprised us by revealing details on its new ultra thin MacBook with a retina display. Get all the details on these stories and more in today’s Daily Roundup.
‘s been six whole months since Tim Cook revealed the Apple Watch to the world. Here we are again. With good reason, though. Apple may have already officially introduced us to its first smartwatch, but there were still some big questions left unanswered. Today Apple gathered the press to give the Watch the launch event it always deserved
Who would have thought that the most interesting thing to come out of Apple’s “Spring Forward” event would actually be a new laptop? In addition to spilling more details on its new smartwatch, the company also unveiled a brand-new (and long-awaited) update to the MacBook Air.
There’s only one Apple Watch, but the company is happy to sell it to you one of three ways: as the Apple Watch Sport, Apple Watch or the Apple Watch Edition. Confusing names aside, it’s the third on the list that has courted the most speculation. Now, the company has revealed that the watch, dressed up in a solid 18-karat gold case with an “exquisitely designed” band will set you back upward of $10,000. Yup, we’re in “if you have to ask, it’s too expensive” territory now, folks.
Since the launch of the iPod, Apple’s either dominated or come close to dominating every industry that it has entered. The only market where the company isn’t the world number one is in set-top boxes, a field that has always been described as a “hobby.” It’s not too much of a risk to think that Apple will do to watches what it’s already done to personal audio, smartphones and tablets — even if global success isn’t overnight.
