    AppleInsider reports today on a strong rumour that says that trial production is set to start later this month for the second-generation Apple Watch. According to Taiwan’s Commercial Times, Quanta will be handling the trial production process, but Apple may also involve some of its other supply chain partners such as Foxconn, Inventec, and Wistron to increase production capacity if needed.

    As is typical for a trial production stage, this initial run will be small-scale, and designed to identify any potential problems in the watch so that they can be fixed prior to the main production period. It usually occurs just before mass production begins, so if true, this news could be a very good indication that the release of the second-generation Apple Watch could be happening in the next few months.

    This would also tie in with comments made by Quanta’s chairman last November, when he said that the second-generation Apple Watch would be on sale by the end of the second quarter of 2016.

      If you ever get the chance to see the Mickey Mouse watch face on several Apple Watches side by side, you'll notice that the feet are tapping in perfect synchronization on every watch.
