Samsung has terminated its beta testing for iOS support for its Gear S2, Fit 2 and S3 smartwatches. Apple’s biggest rival then announced the good news that its smartwatches will soon be compatible with iOS-running devices.

According to SamMobile, the South Korea tech giant has announced that the Gear S3, S2 and Gear Fit 2 timepieces will soon be compatible with iOS. This means iPhone users will be able to connect or pair up their handsets with their Samsung wearables.

The announcement comes more than a year after Samsung revealed in late 2015 that it is bringing iOS support to the Gear S2 at the start of 2016. Unfortunately, the company failed to keep its promise at the time. With the imminent release of iOS support for the smartwatches, it is clear that Samsung did not forget what it had promised in the past.

For iPhone owners who prefer to use any of the aforesaid Samsung smartwatches as the companion device of their smartphone, they will need to download specific apps to unlock this functionality. For those who own the Gear S2 and the Gear S3, they need to download the Samsung Gear S app. On the other hand, Gear Fit 2 users will need to download the Gear Fit app to unlock their device’s IOS compatibility.

Both the Gear S app and the Gear Fit app will soon be available for download from the App Store. It is important for users to know that these apps are only compatible with iPhone 5 and and later generations of iPhones, as per GSM Arena.

Speaking of the release of the apps, a Samsung representative has said, “We are in the final stages of testing and look forward to introducing iOS compatibility across our wearable portfolio very soon.” The rep also admitted that the announcement of the arrival of iOS compatibility to Samsung Gear smartwatches was accidentally leaked ahead of its official schedule.
