October launch for the Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iWatch?
A report out of Japan suggests that the Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iWatch will be launched together, but not until October. According to information leaked by suppliers, both devices will have sensors that work with the new HealthKit app that was introduced last week at WWDC. HealthKit will keep track of certain health metrics that will be provided by sensors in the iPhone 6 and the iWatch.

According to one of Apple's suppliers, five million units of the iWatch will be produced monthly. The wearable is rumored to come with the Touch ID fingerprint scanner and the timepiece is expected to play a huge part in Apple's HomeKit initiative, which will allow you control the everyday functions of your house using an iDevice. According to the suppliers, Apple will price the iWatch between $200 and $300.

While Apple has never mentioned the iWatch by name, CEO Tim Cook has said that Apple will introduce new product categories in 2014. Apple also hasn't addressed rumors about the introduction of an iPhone phablet, believed to be sporting a 5.5 inch screen.

An October launch of the Apple iPhone 6 would represent a small shift from the last two releases. The Apple iPhone 5s was launched on September 20th, 2013 and the Apple iPhone 5 was launched on September 21st, 2012. The Apple iPhone 4s did get released in October of 2011.
