The Apple Watch is slated for a spring 2015 launch, according to a leaked video transcript, dampening hopes of an earlier winter date.
CEO Tim Cook previously said the watch would be “available early next year,” but Angela Ahrendts, the company’s senior vice president of retail and online stores, was quoted in a video transcript obtained by 9to5Mac on Sunday as saying Apple (AAPL) was “sprinting” toward a spring launch date.
“We’re going into the holidays, we’ll go into Chinese New Year, and then we’ve got a new watch launch coming in the spring,” she said.
