The application was filed on June 3 and made public by the Japan Patent Office.

The document will now be reviewed before being eventually approved.

The legal approach suggests that Apple is preparing the launch of a new wristwatch.

Earlier last month Citi analyst Glen Yeung claimed that component suppliers were preparing for the production of the iWatch and that a launch by the end of the year is “increasingly likely.”
