Gear S2 iOS support arrives in an update later this month


Last updated: March 21st, 2016 at 12:57 UTC+01:00

We exclusively confirmed back in December last year that Samsung is working on a Gear Manager app for iOS which will enable users to hook up the Gear S2 smartwatch with an iPhone. Come January, Samsung officially confirmed at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016 that the Gear S2 will be compatible with iOS devices later this year. It didn’t say when the update will arrive but it looks like the update might be arriving in the near future.

The Gear S2 is reportedly going to receive an update by the end of March which is going to bring iOS support to the smartwatch and that’s also when the Gear Manager for iOS will be released. No word as yet on the features that are going to be supported, evidently there will be some features that will require the smartwatch to be hooked up to a Samsung smartphone to function, features like Samsung Pay for example. It was previously reported that this update would arrive in mid-January but that obviously didn’t happen so hopefully this time around the update will arrive for the Gear S2.

Apple finally brings Samsung-like AoD implementation for iPhone 14 Pro

Apple’s iPhones didn’t have the Always-On Display (AoD) mode that has been present on Samsung’s Galaxy phones for generations. With the iPhone 14 Pro, Apple finally brought AoD, but the phones consumed a lot of power. And that’s because Apple’s implementation of AoD was unnecessarily flashy compared to Samsung’s.
