As rumors of various Apple device launches continue to pile up, it’s looking increasingly likely that Apple is on its way to having the biggest holiday season of all time. For those keeping score, we’re now supposedly looking forward to seeing two brand new iPhone 6 models, a refreshed iPad Air, a tweaked iPad mini, a Retina MacBook Air, a revamped Apple TV and a brand new iWatch all debut in the span of a few months. We’re not sure how Apple will manage to maintain growth in next year’s holiday quarter, but for the time being, it looks like Apple fans have plenty to look forward to in 2014.

Now, yet another report has popped up to support claims that Apple will launch its highly anticipated iWatch this coming October.

China Economic News on Thursday cited unspecified foreign news agencies in noting that Quanta Computer, the world’s top contract manufacturer of laptop computers, has secured orders to produce 70% of Apple’s iWatch supply.

More interestingly, however, the Taiwan-based paper seems to state conclusively that the iWatch is scheduled for worldwide launch in October. This aligns with earlier reports, and China Economic News has accurately reported information about Apple’s plans numerous times in the past.

The iWatch is expected to feature a 2.5-inch display that is slightly curved on the sides, and it will also likely include a number of health and fitness-related features.
