Samsung says Gear S2 may someday work with the iPhone

Samsung’s latest wearable, the Gear S2, may make its way to iOS at some point, a company spokesperson said.

Just as Android Wear has, Samsung’s Tizen operating system for wearables could work as a notification center for iPhones. Speaking to Digital Spy, a Samsung spokesperson said “we are looking at possibilities to open it up to iOS. Because we opened it up to Android, we are looking at this.”

The Gear S2 supports Android handsets running Android 4.4 or better, with the lone hardware requirement being 1.5GB RAM.

The Samsung spokesperson also said the company is “positively looking” at getting Tizen working with iOS, but offered no timeframe for when we might see iPhone owners wearing a Gear S2. It’s also not known if Samsung’s other wearables are being considered for iOS integration.
