Apple held the largest share (47.9%) of the global smartwatch shipment market in the third quarter of 2019. Taking a step forward, Apple has launched watchOS 6 which lets developers build an independent app for Apple’s smartwatch. This operating system creates immense business opportunities for business enterprises and individuals. So, what are you waiting for? Create your Independent app for watchOS or add its companion app on iOS.
watchOS is an operating system of Apple Watch, designed and developed by Apple inc. It’s based on iOS and has many similar features. But new in watchOS 6 and beyond, you can download apps directly from your watch – no iPhone needed. So you can choose whether you want to create an independent app and list it on the dedicated watchOS App Store (users can access this app store, right on their wrists). Or you can create your app that works with a companion iOS app.
Independent apps? Yes, that's correct. Today, you can build an app just for Apple Watch, without a companion app on iOS. watchOS allows you to build an independent app for Apple Watch and release it on the App Store. Your users can easily discover, browse, search and install your independent watchOS app on their Apple Watch using Siri’s voice search or tapping a page link. Now that you don't need a companion app on iOS, it’s even simpler. Just build your watchOS app using Builder Studio or give us a call and our experts can give you more help.
