We recently heard that Apple has secured the “iWatch” trademark in two countries, namely Japan and Russia. Now, the Cupertino firm is securing the trademark in other countries, including Taiwan, Mexico, Turkey, Colombia, and Chile. The rumoured iWatch is a wristwatch with features similar to the iPhone 5.

The news comes to us courtesy of MacRumors. The site reports, “In addition to filing for a trademark on the term “iWatch” in Russia and Japan on June 3, we have discovered that Apple filed for a trademark in Taiwan, which follows a report from 9to5Mac that Apple filed in Mexico as well.”

Shortly after, the site updated, saying, “Apple also appears to have filed for an iWatch trademark in Turkey through Pinar Arikan, an attorney who has worked with the company in the past. While the filing does not list Apple as the applicant, it was filed on the same June 3 date as the other applications.”

In a second update, it said, “Apple has also filed for the mark in Colombia and Chile.”

In the last update, it said, “A tipster has also pointed us to a filing in India, bringing the total number of international filings discovered so far to nine, including the original December 2012 application in Jamaica that Apple is using to establish priority.”

With numerous trademark filings across the globe, it seems the arrival of the iWatch is imminent.
