Apple Trademarks ' iWatch' Term, iPhone 5S Release Date Rumored - ABC News

About this Deal

It doesn't appear to be a slow summer for Apple, which is working on various new products, according to reports, including having filed for a trademark in Japan on the name "iWatch."

That might be a good name for the Cupertino, Calif.-based company's rumored smartwatch device, which is said to pair with the iPhone and display notifications and other information. The trademark was filed on June 3 with the Japan Patent Office and made public last week, Bloomberg and Reuters first reported.

Apple would not comment on the reports when reached by ABC News, but Apple CEO Tim Cook addressed the wearable gadget category last month at the All Things D conference and said that the wrist was a "interesting" and "natural" spot for a wearable devices, at least in comparison to Google Glass.
