APPLE WATCH SHIPMENT TO BE DELAYED FOR ONE YEAR

imageCUPERTINO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – On the first day that Apple Watch became available in the U.S., nearly 1 Million people pre-ordered Apple’s first wearable technology venture.

The hotly-anticipated watch sold out online within hours. Buyers of some models won’t receive their devices until May, while others will have to wait until July.

But now, those who were lucky enough to complete their online orders will  have to wait for a year to get their purchased item.

The reason? There was a major production glitch.

While Apple focused on the amazing features of their wrist-size device, developers overlooked one very important, yet simple feature: Daylight Saving Time.

The Apple Watches that have been  shipped out of the tech company’s production centers in China are not designed to automatically adjust to Daylight Saving Time.  This means that Apple Watch owners in the U.S. willl be thrown off when it comes to telling the time when Daylight Saving Time is in effect.

Apple CEO Tim Cook issued a statement apologizing to Apple fans for the delay in delivery of the hot item, but reiterated that the company will never compromise its  credbility and integrity by shipping defective items.

To compensate for the delay, Cook said that all those who pre-ordered the Apple Watch will get a 50% refund of their purchase price.

Apple Watch shipment in countries outside of the U.S. will not be affected by the shipping delay.

Cupertino, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Today was the big day that many Apple fans have been waiting for — the unveiling of the new iPhone 6 and the wearable watch.

In his keynote speech today in the unveiling of Apple’s newest products, CEO Tim Cook surprised many by announcing not one, but two new iPhones — the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 6 Plus.

As earlier reported by The Adobo Chronicles,  the new iPhones are thinner, lighter, longer-lasting and have bigger screens.  They also come pre-installed with the new app Apple pay which would allow users to pay retailers with their mobile device.

But the huge crowd that gathered at the Apple’s Cupertino headquarters was terribly disappointed when Cook unveiled the long-awaited wearable watch.  Many were expecting it to be called iWatch, but Apple named it Apple Watch instead. It will be available in early to mid-2015.  It will also come pre-installed with Apple pay.

“It is not at all what I expected.  I am very frustrated,” said one Apple fan who has bought every single new Apple product that came out since the first iPhone.” “While I give two thumbs up for the new iPhones, I  give the Apple Watch a total thumbs down,”
he said.

Here is the Apple Watch unveiled today:
