Apple is reportedly having production issues with its new smartwatch. Manufacturers would struggle to adapt the production process to the new design, leading to delays, insiders told Bloomberg news agency.
The new gadget is expected to have a larger screen and a faster processor. But the upgrade would be too complex. In previous generations, the design of the Apple Watch has remained largely unchanged.
The Japanese newspaper Nikkei previously reported that the production of smart clocks had been delayed.
Manufacturers of the timepiece, which will probably be called the Apple Watch 7, started small-scale production last week, according to the newspaper. But that process has not yet gone as planned.
