Is Android Wear about to become compatible with iOS?
Jeff Chang, Android Wear’s product manager has made clear that he’d love it if his and the iOS team could collaborate and play nice. Is a revolution incoming?
Android Wear OS, Google’s open source operative system for smartwear has been getting good reception amongst techies so far, but Google would like to take it one step further and make it compatible with iOS gadgets too. According to Jeff Chang, the iOS’s user base is a very attractive target for them if only because of its sheer size. He explained that “we always want as many users as possible to enjoy our experience, so in terms of enabling more people to use Android Wear we’re very interested in making that happen.”
The tricky part is getting Apple to be okay with it, as they get the last word on each and every piece of software that runs on their devices. It’s not like Apple don’t know what they’re doing, or will outright refuse, as they’ve already collaborated with Microsoft, for example, in order to bring Office to iPhones, iPads and the like. Yet, wasn’t Apple going to launch their own Smartwatch too? We’ll update you once we have more information.
