Apple’s long-awaited smart watch will ship in April, company CEO Tim Cook told investors on a conference call Tuesday after Apple posted its latest earnings report.
Apple has previously said its Apple Watch would ship in “early 2015.” By most standards, an April release date would meet that expectation.
The Apple Watch will start at $349 and come in a variety of styles and colors. It will pair up with Apple’s iPhones and include features like text-message notifications, on-watch calling and fitness tracking.

Apple’s quarterly report blew past Wall Street’s expectations Tuesday, with the company posting earnings of $3.06 per share on revenue of $74.6 billion, compared with a predicted $2.60 a share on $67.69 billion in revenue. The company also said it sold 74.5 million iPhones, up 46% year-over-year and shattering its previous quarterly record by more than 23 million units.
However, the success of Apple’s larger iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones appear to be eating into its iPad sales, which were down 17%. Apple sold 21.5 million iPads in the quarter, missing expectations and adding new doubts about the tablet’s future.
