There has been plenty of speculation that Apple was going to release an iWatch device as the company - and the wider tech industry - explores the area of wearable technology as a potential new source of revenue.
Sony announced its new SmartWatch 2 last week, which combines with an Android phone to bring notifications, messages, updates and all kinds of stuff to a users' wrist.
Foxcon is also working on its own smartwatch device that will be compatible with iPhones.
Apple CEO Tim Cook did admit that Apple is exploring the area too, but appeared to be cautious about the willingness of consumers to wear tech.
"There's nothing that's going to convince a kid who has never worn glasses or a band or a watch to wear one, or at least I haven't seen it," Cook said.
