Apple Expects Apple Watch Demand to Exceed Supply at Launch

Apple WatchApple issued a reminder on Thursday that Apple Watch pre-orders and try-on appointments begin April 10, with retail chief Angela Ahrendts claiming that the company believes “tremendous interest” in the Apple Watch will result in demand exceeding supply for the wrist-worn device at launch.

““We are excited to welcome customers tomorrow and introduce them to Apple Watch, our most personal device yet. Based on the tremendous interest from people visiting our stores, as well as the number of customers who have gone to the Apple Online Store to mark their favorite Apple Watch ahead of availability, we expect that strong customer demand will exceed our supply at launch,” said Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s senior vice president of Retail and Online Stores. “To provide the best experience and selection to as many customers as we can, we will be taking orders for Apple Watch exclusively online during the initial launch period.”

Apple Watch launches April 24 in the United States and other first wave launch countries.

Soundcore refreshes the Q series headphones with the new Life Q30

Soundcore may not be the household name of Beats or Sony…yet. However, the audio brand from Anker has been making quality devices for a few years now. The company is adding to that stable of music headphones with the new Life Q30 Bluetooth headphones.While truly wireless earbuds are all the rage these days the Life Q lineup of “traditional” over-ear headphones could be considered the top tier that Anker has to offer. The new Soundcore LIfe Q30 builds on the great Q20 from last year with Active Noise Cancellation and a compelling spec sheet.ANC includedThe active noise cancellation uses multiple microphones to help filter up to 95% of outside noise while only giving you the audio playback in the headphones. There’s also a transparency mode that adjusts the filter process to allow you more input from the outside environment.Custom tuningWhen you do want to rock out to nothing but tunes, you’ll be hit with 40mm silk drivers for a robust sound. Custom tuning is onboard as well. This offers different EQ and sound profiles to be set from the Soundcore mobile app on both iOS and Android.All-day batteryPair all that with a huge power capacity, and the Life Q30 is a great addition to the Soundcore portfolio. Anker has the battery life rated at up to 40 hours of total playback per charge while using ANC. Turn off noise cancellation and it estimates an additional 20 hours. Yes, 60 hours total.Of course, we’ll need to confirm this in real-world usage, but the Life Q20 has us comfortable that these projections are pretty close to actual results.Available soonAnker doesn’t have a set date of availability past “early November” in the US. It does have a concrete price tag of $79.99 from the Soundcore Amazon storefront.
