Report: Apple iWatch coming next fall with wireless charging support According to a new report, Apple will release the oft-rumored iWatch in October 2014, after having testing multiple prototypes.
Supposedly, the watch will also include wireless charging capabilities, allowing for the device to charge from as far as three feet away.

Battery life still appears to be an issue for Apple, with previous reports claiming the prototypes could only last up to 2 days on a charge, and the company not ready to release it until that it is extended to 4-5 days. The new report claims Apple has been using a tiny 100 mAh battery for their prototypes, which is extremely small when considering the Samsung Galaxy Gear and its poor battery life has a 315 mAh battery.

It also remains unclear what size display the watch will feature, with most reports claiming it will be either 1.3-inches or 1.7-inches.
