Rumour: Apple`s iWatch runs full IOS and arrives later this year

Chalk this one up as another iWatch rumour so here goes. The iWatch in its current prototype state allegedly runs a full version of IOS but there`s a problem, battery life is an issue.

From The Verge:

"That's apparently leading to battery life issues in development, according to our sources: the goal is to last at least 4-5 days between charges, but the current watch prototypes are apparently only going for a couple days max. We're also told Apple has some work to do with iOS on the iPhone, which currently has several hooks for supporting a watch-like device but lacks the appropriate interface or settings to make it work properly."

considering Apple (not surprisingly) does not generally comment on products that are still in development this isn`t a shocker. if (or when) Apple does release an iWatch i`m sure a lot these problems will be addressed in one way or another. i`m just hoping this isn`t another fancy bluetooth enabled wrist display for your smartphone, there just has to be more to it for me to jump on this, time will tell.
