Apple now plans to unveil a new wearable alongside the two next-generation iPhones we told you the company will debut on September 9th. [...] The new device will, predictably, make good use of Apple’s HealthKit health and fitness platform. It will also — predictably — make good use of HomeKit, the company’s new framework for controlling connected devices — though it’s not clear how broadly or in what way.
Re/code previously reported that Apple was targeting October for holding an event to show off its health-focused wearable device, and today’s report mentions that an October event for other products could still be in Apple’s plans.
(For historical purposes, the last two iPad events were held in late October.)
9to5Mac has reported heavily on Apple’s plans for its wearable product tentatively dubbed iWatch.
