SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Apple will unveil an "iWatch" in September with the maker of the iPhone finally embarking on its much-rumoured foray into wearable computing, technology news website Re/code said on Wednesday.

The California tech giant is expected to merge style and innovation, along with sensors and computing power, in a wrist-worn device that links wirelessly to iPhones or iPads.

Apple is believed to be planning a Sept 9 event at which it will introduce the iWatch, along with new-generation iPhone 6 smartphones with increased screen sizes.

The company has not sent out invitations to such an event, nor - as is standard Apple practice - has it commented on reports it will even take place.
