Updated: Apple pulls the eBay Apple Watch app from a featured list on its site

That iThingy You're Wearing
May 8, 2015

Update: We received a quick note from eBay. The company said that the app will be arriving “in the coming weeks.”

Apple Watch users waiting for the official eBay app may have to be patient. First spotted by MacRumors, Apple has removed any mention of it from a featured page of watch apps.

Here’s the complete app description that disappeared from Apple’s site:

The world’s largest marketplace is now closer and more convenient than ever. eBay for Apple Watch helps you stay on top of the auctions you’re watching. It can send outbid notices and other notifications directly to you, so you can react immediately.

All of the other apps appearing on the site are already available to download. So more than likely, Apple removed the eBay app to not confuse potential watch buyers. It also signals that it could be some time before eBay brings the auction service to the watch.


The description of the eBay watch app that previously appeared on Apple’s site.

After opening up preorders in early April, Apple Watch shipments began arriving to customers exactly two weeks ago. Any 42mm Apple Watch or Apple Watch Sport order placed today is expected to be delivered sometime in July.

Buyers of the smaller, 38mm watch will have to wait until sometime next month to receive their orders. You’ll need an iPhone 5 or later to interact with the watch.

Currently, there are almost 4,000 approved Apple Watch apps available to download on the App Store. On our sister site WatchAware, you can take a look at an interactive preview for each and every app.
