Apple Watch will be available for in-store purchase next month
The age-old adage suggests that the early bird catches the worm, and never is this more apparent in the world of tech than when Apple releases a new product. The majority of those who received their Apple Watch on or around the April 24th launch day only did so because they hit the pre-order website within hours of it going live, and in many cases, the waiting continues.
Amid the hullabaloo, though, Apple is working to better manage supply, and since Cook has now indicated that the expansion of Apple Watch's reach will coincide with the sale of the device at brick-and-mortar stores, it seems the company is slowly but surely streamlining the retail process.
The revelation was apparently made by Cook during a recent trip to China, specifically at the company's Chinese HQ. Cupertino's head honcho also expressed his appeasement at the device's launch, noting that it "could not be going better," while also reiterating the efforts being made to meet with the immense demand.
During his visit to China, Cook also discussed the eventual launch of Apple Pay throughout the nation, although stopped short of offering a ballpark timescale for its roll-out. The contactless payment system has enjoyed a positive reception since being introduced along with iOS 8.1 late last year, although as yet, hasn't broadened its horizons beyond the confines of the United States.
Meanwhile, the first Apple Watch software update was pushed a short while ago, and if you'd like to know how to install it, check our step-by-step tutorial.
