Gear Manager for iOS leaked online

It was back in December last year that we exclusively revealed that Samsung was working on Gear Manager for iOS. This app will allow the Gear S2 smartwatch to work with an iPhone. Samsung confirmed in January this year that the Gear S2 will soon get support for iOS but it didn’t provide a confirmed date. A few weeks ago it was reported that support will arrive by the end of March but that didn’t happen. Now there’s a big indication that the Gear S2 iOS support just might arrive in the near future.

The leaked Gear Manager for iOS app is now circulating online. The leaked .ipa app file is a big indication that the app will soon be officially available from the App Store. In case you’ve never used an iPhone before it’s not possible to sideload an app as easily as you can on Android so you’re pretty much out of luck if you don’t have a jailbroken iPhone. Even if you do have a jailbroken iPhone it’s not recommended to sideload apps that come from unofficial sources, so bear in mind that should you decide to tinker with it you do so at your own risk. Just keep your fingers crossed if you can’t wait to use your Gear S2 with an iPhone, it may not be long before this becomes official.

Actually FYI Apple also ported their apple music app to android
And tizen or bada aren’t really such important operating systems for Apple to waste time porting
Who knows maybe once iphone sales drop they’ll port their apps to android to entice fans away from android and on to its latest flagships

FYI: you an download the ipa file to your desktop and use itunes to push the file to your iphone (Im running a iphone 6 plus – no jail break) Then on the iphone just go into settings/general/profile and device management and enable the samsung enterprise app. Then you have the gear app installed and working.

Samsung supporting Apple OS, great move Samsung. But can you ever imagine Apple supporting Samsung OS?! It’ll never happen.

This is a good step. It helps to sell a few more Gear S2 watches and make the Apple customers to walk in to Sammy stores to at least check out the product. Also it comes at the right time, as now Samsung flagships are much more premium than any other and hence there is much more chance that they get ios customers converted also.
