Back in September, Apple announced its long-awaited smartwatch, imaginatively named the Apple Watch. But despite being unveiled two months ago, the company said that it would not become available until "early 2015", which many had taken to mean that it would probably go on sale in the first few months of the year.
That means that the watch will miss the all-important holiday sales season, but it appears that the wait for its launch may be longer than some people were expecting. 9to5Mac has obtained a transcript of an internal video featuring Apple's Senior Vice President of Retail and Online Sales, Angela Ahrendts.
In the video, Ahrendts states that Apple's new wearable device won't be launching until spring 2015: "We're going into the holidays, we'll go into Chinese New Year, and then we've got a watch launch coming in the spring," she says.
Spring starts in late March and ends in late June, so it looks like the Apple Watch won't be arriving for some time. Still, at least that gives you plenty of time to save up your pennies for the device, with prices starting - yes, starting and going up from - $349.
