When Apple launched the original iPhone back in 2007, it was something really new and cool; a product that is often credited with reshaping the smartphone industry ever since. I think Apple hopes that the iWatch will be a similar watershed product. We already have smartwatch devices from the likes of Sony and Samsung, but could Apple take the glory on this one? I am probably not the best person to be objective about this, as I think smartwatches in general are overpriced and unnecessary devices, but some pundits think otherwise:
Every time Apple announces a new iPhone, the device has a few features and surprises that put the company's most profitable product ahead of the competition, at least for a few months. That's probably going to happen again on Tuesday.
The iPhone 6 will probably be extremely thin, fast and light. It may have a nearly unscratchable sapphire screen. It will likely come in two sizes.
Nice. But 10 years from now, nobody will remember the announcement of the iPhone 6.
They will, however, remember the launch of the Apple iWatch
