The Apple Watch release date, which will be announced at Apple’s “Spring Forward” special media event next Monday, is rumored to be in the early part of April.
A source has told MacRumors late last week that Apple will be launching the Apple Watch in the United States during the first few days of the month. The first full week of April, which is April 6-10 will likely be the launch date for the smartwatch. It’s possible that Apple will open up preorders so this is expected to be in late March/early April.
Last week Tim Cook spoke to employees at the Berlin flagship Apple Store confirming that the Apple Watch will be coming to other countries after its release in the United States. He said that Germany will be receiving the watch in April and other countries will soon follow. Various sources and rumors suggest that Canada, China, United Kingdom, Australia and France may also be seeing the watch in April.
The Spring Forward special media event will live streaming on Monday, March 9th at 10am PDT or 1pm EST.
