Apple turns taps up on iWatch supply

WatchA glut of orders for the Apple watch over the weekend has caused the company to make a statement later today on the number of customers that have committed to buy.

And, according to a report on Reuters, Apple will ask its Asian suppliers to increase production to meet demand for the much hyped device.

Some analysts estimate that as many as a million people placed order for the iWatch at the end of last week. One analyst claimed that Apple sold out within the 10 to 30 minutes.

Other analysts believe that Apple will sell as many as 20 million watches in the first year, which is a success in anyone’s book.

Delivery date for the iWatch is the 24th of April and it’s unclear whether Apple will be able to meet demand.

Most see the Apple iWatch as a fashion accessory rather than a practical piece of kit.
