People protest the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Security and technical commentators have cast doubt on reports from the Turkish media that journalist Jamal Khashoggi's "torture and death" inside the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul was captured by his Apple watch and sent to his iPhone.

Khashoggi is a Saudi Arabian journalist writing for the Washington Post, and he has been missing since 2 October when he was last seen walking into his home country's embassy in Turkey.

According to media reports, Turkish officials say they have evidence of Kashoggi's murder inside the embassy, and that the journalist actually recorded what happened to him on his Apple Watch.

Some have speculated that it's more likely the reports are a cover story, and the Turkish government had other means of obtaining information about Khashoggi.

Technology and security experts are disputing the reports from Turkish press, reportedly seeded by Turkish officials, that journalist Jamal Khashoggi's Apple watch captured audio of him being tortured and killed inside the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul.
