Apple Watch supplier confirms next iteration in works

The successor to the Apple Watch is currently being worked on, according to Barry Lam, chairman of Taiwan-based Quanta Computer, the company which assembles the wearable device for the iPhone-maker.

Lam reportedly made the aforementioned comment recently during an an investor meeting, noting that the next-gen Apple Watch will perform better than the original variant. Soon thereafter, rumors started going around that the Apple Watch 2 would be launched towards the end of Q2 next year.

These rumors are inline with previous reports that suggested a 2016 launch for the Apple Watch successor. There have also been rumors that the new wearable will continue sporting the existing square form factor.
