If rumors are correct, Apple’s new iWatch product will be the proverbial talk of the town in 2014.

Apple is geared for a big 2014. Product updates to the iPad Air and mini as well as the Apple TV will be met by a game-changing newcomer, the iWatch. The much-heralded device is said to be the world’s first-ever “smart watch,” and we think it will become an important piece of mobile casino software.

Tech experts speculate that it will offer access to the full range of iOS services while being able to compete stylistically with the fashion watch industry. These are bold claims, but listen to what KGI Ming-Chi Kuo has to say:

“We believe the rumored iWatch will be Apple’s most important product this year, carrying much more weight than the iPhone 6, as market feedback for the product should reveal whether Apple still has the ability to continue making game-changing products with Tim Cook at the helm.”

What it means for online gamblers

While still second to the Android platform, iPad and iPhone Mobile Gambling have become a major component of the iGaming industry. More (and better) apps are being released on the iOS platform all the time. If the iWatch does support the full range of iOS services, users will be able to play mobile blackjack or slots simply by lifting their arm.
