Android Wear devices, as its name suggests, only works with Android devices; until now. A developer by the name of MohammadAG has successfully paired his Motorola Moto 360 with his Apple iPhone 6. The best part? The iPhone didn’t even need to be jailbroken.
In order to accomplish this, the developer installed his very own companion app on the Moto 360. He also made use of the Apple Notification Center Service (ANSC) that is built into iOS 7 and later. This feature connects via Bluetooth to pass along notifications to devices, which is basically how the Pebble smartwatches work with iOS devices.

However, before you run out to get yourself a shiny new Moto 360 or LG G Watch R, the companion app only grants the ability to push iPhone notifications to the Android Wear device. Other features of Android Wear such as navigation and Google Now cards don’t seem to work, or at least, not yet.
The good news is, MohammadAG is planning to release the companion app to other users very soon, but no specific date has been given. Although the app only enables the ability to receive notifications on Android Wear devices, it’s good to know that it is at least possible for iPhones to pair with it.
