The iWatch is set to be one of the biggest innovations that Apple has released in recent years, but there might be a secret coming that will be sure to help them takeover the market in a big way: voice messaging.
There is a lot of speculation around the health monitoring features of the iWatch, but it is the voice messaging that stands out. This kind of thing has already been available as a part of iOS 7 in some form, but it must be dictated and then sent as a text. iOS 8 will simply require users to press a button, record a message, and then swipe the screen in order to send it.
There are already plenty of people using similar features in places like China, but Tim Cook hopes that he will be able to successfully port this to the iWatch and help them move further into China, in addition to introducing the feature here. The amount of people that will use it can’t be known, but some analysts are pointing to iWatch sales of anywhere from 40 to 50 million units. That would mean ten percent of all iPhone users would be buying one, something that doesn’t seem out of line with what many people are expecting.
This could certainly be a powerful app for Apple, although we still know very little for sure. The iWatch has remained shrouded in mystery, but an official announcement is expected in the coming months.
