Apple Watch Launch After March 20th

Apple announced the new Apple Watch in September and CEO Tim Cook said that the watch will ship in early 2015. However, it looks like the promise of early 2015 shipping date will not be fulfilled. As Apple’s Senior Vice President Angela Ahrendts told retail employees in a video message that Apple Watch launch is scheduled to occur in the “spring”.

9to5mac is reporting that in a video message Ahrendts stated, “we’re going into the holidays, we’ll go into Chinese New Year, and then we’ve got a new watch launch coming in the spring.”

Until now it was believed that Apple will launch the Watch in first quarter of 2015, but with this statement from Apple’s SVP it looks almost impossible that we will see the watch before end of first quarter.

Spring starts on March 20th and ends on June 20th, which would mean that the Apple Watch will be released somewhere in April to end of May timeframe and not early 2015.
