Last night we were quite busy with Apple’s third fiscal quarter results, but there is a very interesting fact that the Financial Times has highlighted and that alone gives a lot of strength to all the rumors: Apple has invested a sum of money in its Research and Development (R&D) departments never seen in eight years: $1.6 billion .

This is an increase of 36% (about $425 million) over the investments of the past quarters, and was not the case since 2006 . Just when Apple was about to introduce its iPhone. It does not confirm anything, but such an investment implies that Apple has been testing products that nobody has launched before and that therefore have needed an extra economic effort behind.

Nor can we ignore the patent that has appeared for the so-called iTime, which confirms that Apple has been working hard to launch its own wearable . There are already less doubts to have if we believe that this fall we will see the presentation of something completely new .
