RumorTT: Apple's iWatch to feature home automation tech, and more

RumorTT: Home automation to be a very big part of Apple's upcoming iWatch (NASDAQ:AAPL)

Samsung is already here with its Galaxy Gear smartwatch, and preparations for its successor, with Apple still waiting in the wings with its own iWatch. But, we have a new research note from Brian White, an analyst for Cantor Fitzgerald, who says:




As an Apple supplier, our contact offered insight into the "iWatch" and described this potential new device as much more than an extension of your iPhone but as a multi-purpose gateway in allowing consumers to control their home (i.e., heating/cooling, lights, audio, video, etc.).


Now, if this happens, it would be quite a different product to what most expect it to be. This would allow iWatch users, with the compatible technology and appliances in their houses, to control lighting and temperature, all from their iWatch. There are two rumored iWatch products to arrive, with a 1.3- and 1.6-inch model, both with 320x320 AMOLED screens.
