A leaked version of the Samsung Gear Manager iOS app for the Gear S3 and S2 to work with iPhone has made its way onto the Internet via Tizen Cafe website. Samsung recently signed up testers for its iOS beta program of the Gear Manager app to the general public. Users that were accepted into the closed beta will be able to connect their iPhones (5 and newer on iOS 8.4) with Samsung’s Gear S2 smartwatch and the Gear Fit 2. The beta program has however come to an end now.
No timescales have been announced as to when the official Gear Manager iOS app will be released, but in the meanwhile users who like to tinker around can use this leaked version to get by. We can not guarantee its authenticity or if it's safe to use, but lots of XDA members have been Installing it.
Your ready to go!
This is a beta leak so it is expected to be buggy. Some users have found that only a limited amount of watchfaces and apps that can be Installed. Also if you want to re-enter the store or sync your smartwatch again you need to kill the app and then reload it.
We have previously seen the Gear Manager beta running on a iOS device and you will be able to receive notifications from Whatsapp, Twitter, etc on your watch from the S2 / S3. Samsung’s S-health services are are working on iOS as well as the iPhone’s calendar. You will also be able to set your photos as your watchfaces background.
