This Tuesday, Apple unveiled its quarterly earnings report, announcing new sales records, but also shed some light on the launch date of their highly anticipated Apple Watch. During the follow-up conference call, Tim Cook announced that development of the upcoming gadget is “right on schedule” and the first units are expected to be shipped in April. The Apple CEO also added that his expectations regarding the new product are very high and that he’s extremely pleased with the large number of developers already writing apps for the device.

"My expectations are very high on it. I'm using it every day and love it and can't live without it," Cook said. The amount of developers writing apps for the wearable is "impressive," he said, and Apple is "seeing some incredible innovation."
Ever since it was announced back in September, there have been countless rumors and speculation about the Apple Watch and while we now know its approximate launch date, there are still a lot of things we don’t know. Like battery life, for example, which many reports indicate it won’t be something extraordinary, but around 19 hours of “mixed use” and as low as 2.5 hours of “active use”.
Anyway, regardless of how successful the Apple Watch will be,one thing’s for sure, that Apple is doing really well right now. According to the earnings report, the company sold 74.5 million iPhones in the December quarter, almost 25 million more units than the same quarter last year. As for earnings, the company reported total revenue of $74.6 billion and earnings of $18 billion.
