According to tech tsimis, Apple is planning to come out with a device called the iWatch. What the heck is it, you ask? It's rumored to be a super hi-tech watch with geeky features your rundown relo doesn't have.

The iWatch is being dubbed as Apple's response to the likes of Samsung's Galaxy Gear and the Pebble Steel. The thing though is it's not confirmed yet. Appleever the secretive companyhasn't released any official deets about it.

This has spurred the Internet to come up with rumors about the device. Talk of Apple coming up with the iWatch first surfaced in late 2012 after a Chinese website called tech.163 said the company is building a smart watch with a touchscreen.

Since then, the rumor mill has been quite active in churning out unofficial iWatch-related bits. Here we list down the most popular rumors about the device and the nifties it could possibly have. Who knows, maybe a few of these will turn out to be legit after all. Pustahan, anyone?


IT'S GOING TO HAVE A CURVED DISPLAY

A Korean website has apparently revealed that LG will be making the display for the iWatch. The size? 1.56-inches diagonal, roughly the same size as the display slapped on the Galaxy Gear.

But what's really interesting is the buzz surrounding the possibility of having a curved display on the device. You see, LG is one of the very few companies that can make devices with a curved displaymuch like the G Flex smartphoneso the iWatch having one is not a far-fetched idea. Also, as something that hugs our wrist, the iWatch will benefit from having a curved display, making it a need rather than an unnecessary pampasikat.


IT'S WIRELESS CHARGING-ENABLED

In a report from the New York Times, anonymous sources say Apple is experimenting on something called Magnetic Induction for the iWatch. Magnetic Induction is a feature which allows wireless charging on mobile devices. Mission impossible? Not really, since some tech companies have already achieved wireless charging, like Nokia.

Another thing that will make geeks happy: solar charging. Other reports suggest that the iWatch will also have solar-charging capabilities. Since the device will likely see plenty of time outdoors, having this feature definitely makes sense.

 

NEXT: So, when will it be released?
