It has been said many times that the Samsung Gear S2 will be compatible with iOS devices sometime in the future. Samsung officially announced this back at CES 2016, but the company did not mention exactly when the update will arrive. However, if a recent report is to be believed, the update will be rolling out by the end of this month.
Coincidentally, the supposed roll out of this update is about the same time as the release of the Gear Manager for iOS, which gives even more credibility to this launch timeframe. It would be a timely one as well; the new iPhone SE will start shipping on the 31st of March, after all.
The Gear S2 is a compelling smartwatch. In terms of specification, it is packed with a 1.2-inch 360 x 360 circular Super AMOLED display, an Exynos 3250 1.0GHz dual-core processor paired with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a unique rotatable bezel that acts as an input method, and a 250mAh battery. In our review of the Gear S2, we were quite impressed by it as well.
Although there’s a chance that the iOS compatibility update for the Gear S2 will be rolled out by the end of March 2016, Samsung itself has yet to confirm when the update will be available. We will just have to wait until the end of the month to find out if the update will roll out by then.
