During Apple’s fiscal second quarter conference call on Monday, Tim Cook conceded that the demand for Apple Watch has been much greater than supply, but the company is working hard to remedy that.
“I think we’re in a good position,” he said. “And sometime in late June we currently anticipate being in a position where we could begin to sell the Apple Watch in additional countries. That’s our current plan.”
The Apple Watch officially launched in 9 countries last Friday, including Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, the UK and the US. Cook gave no indication of second-round countries.
Supplies for the Watch have been extremely limited since pre-orders went up in early April. Some orders were delivered last week, but many are still showing mid-May to June, and you still can’t find them in stores.
