Apple Watch components enter production, S1 processor and Force Touch Retina display in sight
Reportedly, the A-Watch is built on a new chip design, instead of relying on the tried and true A-series processors. It's a custom-designed system-in-a-package (SiP) chip named "S1", which contains the device's entire computational component. In addition to what is, in effect, the first processor from a major brand that's dedicated to wearables, the Apple Watch is said to have a Force Touch Retina display that's able to discern between tapping and pressing. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a haptic feedback engine, NFC, and wireless charging are to be found, too.
