With Apple’s hugely hyped iWatch due to make its first official appearance at the company’s special event on Tuesday, news is emerging about just what we can expect from apps for the wearable device.
A source told the Apple-watchers at 9to5mac that Cupertino has seeded a software development kit (SDK) to key developers, in a bid to ensure the device has wide-ranging third-party support when it eventually hits shelves in 2015.
"High profile social network and services companies" are purported to be in on the act. That suggests the likes of Facebook, Twitter and eBay will all have iWatch applications.
Chances are Apple will show off apps from some of its partners at its September 9th gathering, with the aim of showing consumers why they should hold out for an iWatch rather than buying an Android Wear device.
iWatch specs remain unclear at this point in time. There have been no component leaks, with Apple believed to want to trail the device and get it perfect rather than rus- releasing it and fixing any issues as it goes.
The watch should make an appearance alongside two new iPhone models on Tuesday.
