Apple was granted a patent for a smartwatch Tuesday, lending credence to rumors that the company will unveil a new "iWatch" this fall, according to CNN Money.
In the patent filing, Apple (AAPL, Tech30) revealed a square smartwatch design, but it didn't disclose too many more details about the iWatch.
Most of what the company revealed shows that the device may have many of the same features as its competitors' smartwatches -- a touchscreen, an accelerometer, a GPS receiver, Bluetooth, and alerts via vibration. The iWatch connects to a mobile device, displays notifications and allows users to accept or decline phone calls.
