Reports suggest that Apple’s watch might be coming this year with a reworked version of iOS.

The watch project is said to employ a team of 100 engineers headed by Apple’s design Chief Jonathan Ive. Reports also hinted that the watch will run on a version of iOS as opposed to previous rumours that it will run on a modified version of the iPod nano’s touch operating system.

However, it seems Apple is still having some issues with the watch specifically with the battery life. If the watch will indeed run on iOS, it is to be expected that the operating system alone will take a big bite into the device’s power supply. Apple plans to make the watch last 4-5 days between charges but the current prototypes are only lasting for 1-2 days.

Reports also hinted that Apple might be tweaking with the iOS on the iPhone and other devices to support the watch. It is also unclear whether the watch will be protected by a Gorilla Glass panel as Corning said in an earlier statement that it may take them at least 3 years to manufacture a curved glass panel to go with the watch’s design.

Nevertheless, it’s quite evident that Apple will be investing its resources in the development of such a device, especially now that investors are showing interest on wearable gadgets such as that of Google’s Glass and other successful high-tech watch like the Pebble watch and metwatch.
