    Exclusive: Samsung plans to bring almost all its apps to iOS

    Samsung already has a bunch of apps on iOS platform. Earlier this month, the firm had revealed its plans to bring iOS support for the Gear S2, but that's not all. We've recently received information from our trusted insiders that Samsung is planning to bring most of its apps (if not all) to Apple's iOS platform later this year.

    According to the information that we've received, Samsung is working on Gear Fit Manager for iOS. This will allow people who own the Gear Fit to pair it with an iPhone. To compliment the Gear Fit Manager and Gear Manager apps, Samsung will also release the S Health app for iPhone. S Health app can be used to log daily activity, workouts, food intake, and sleep.

    In terms of home entertainment, Samsung is bringing iOS support for the Galaxy View. The company is developing the Remote Control and Family Square apps for the iOS, which can be used to remotely control the Galaxy View using an iPhone and allow different users to stream content to the movable display. There are plans to release the Level app for Samsung's Level audio devices as well, which will enable iPhone users to use these devices and make use of various effects and an official way of control.

    Samsung is also working on a newer version of the Smart Camera app for iOS, which might bring an overhauled UI (something that we think is utterly necessary) to the table. The Smart Camera app by Samsung can be used for remotely controlling the company's smart cameras, copying images and videos, and to use the connected tablet or smartphone as a remote viewfinder.

    Samsung surely understands that it needs to add support for iOS to increase the adoption of its connected devices as the company has some big plans for a connected home using its IoT platform. Even its SUHD TVs will now come with integrated SmartThings hubs.
