IT’S ABOUT TIME
As with other major celebrities, new iPhones can’t help a few revealing shots appearing on the internet before announcement day. But while Apple’s new blowers (of which you’ll see more in a minute) had been leaked in some detail, no-one had a clue what the Apple Watch would look like until this month. And here it is: a sapphire crystal screen that can sense the difference between a tap and a press, a Digital Crown spinner that zooms and selects different things on the screen, and a bevy of sensors that can tell not just how you are, but who you are. Like the iPhone, it has three finishes: standard steel, aluminium and gold, all available in two sizes. Is this the beginning of the Age of Wearables, or the beginning of the Age of People Squinting Irritatedly at Their Wrists? We’ll see.
