After a long delay, it looks like both the Gear S2 and the Gear Fit 2 are now compatible with iOS devices, at least as part of a beta program.

Bringing iOS support to the Gear S2 smartwatch lineup is something Samsung promised in late 2015 and, this spring, the iOS beta program was apparently only a few days away. Unfortunately, it took more than just a few days or weeks until Samsung has finally offered support for Apple devices to those using its smart wearables. 

One reason for this delay might be the launch of Samsung's new fitness and activity tracker, Gear Fit 2, which was also added to the list of iOS-supported devices. This way, the iOS beta program supports both the Gear S2 smartwatch and the Gear Fit 2 smart wearable. Taking part in it is voluntary, and the feedback of those involved is being used by Samsung to improve the Gear Manager app for iOS.

According to SamMobile, the program will run until mid-September. In addition to the Samsung wearables mentioned above, those who want to join the program need an iPhone loaded with iOS 8.4 or later.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
