Apple Watch to ship in April

Apple CEO Tim Cook confirmed today that the Apple Watch will ship in April, 2015 during the company's Q1 2015 earnings call. Cook insisted that an April launch is within the company's previously specified "early 2015" timeframe and has faced no delays in this respect. 

Apple Watch marks Apple's first major move into a new product category since 2010's iPad. Commenting on the device, the Apple chief stated that he wears it every day, loves it and "can't live without it."

He also said that the number of developers writing apps for the Watch platform was "impressive" adding that "we’re seeing some incredible innovation coming out."

Apple Watch had previously been rumored to be hitting retail store shelves in March, but it appears that is incorrect. Little else is know about Apple's upcoming line of wearable devices. Prices start at $349 but could reach the lofty heights of $4,000 for the premium Apple Watch Edition. 

During the call, Apple reported record-breaking Q1 2015 earnings including $74.6 billion in revenue with a net profit of $18 billion, a staggering 74.5 million iPhones sold, record App Store performance as well as 21.4 million iPads and 5.5 million Macs sold during the last three months of 2014.
