Apple has been crushing Samsung with their innovations and tech domination through the past 10 years with the launch of the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad. For the first time since the iPod was created, Apple seemed to be behind in the new smartwatch market.
Samsung released their smartwatch more than a year before Apple release their’s. Is there a reason why Apple waited this long? Was Apple worried of entering an undiscovered market?
Or, were they holding up for something bigger?
