Delay: Apple’s rumored iWatch may have hit production problems that will further delay it, reports AppleInsider. Rumors claim that the iWatch won’t enter production until the fourth quarter of 2014. These rumors stem from the fact that TPK, which is a supplier of touch components for Apple products, has set back profit forecasts by three months. TPk was first rumored to be working on the iWatch in February.
TV: Apple TV has expanded what channels it offers, 9to5Mac notes. New channels added to Apple TV include Fox Now and CNBC.
