Google announced today on the Official Google Blog that Android Wear now works with iPhones. According to the announcement, only the LG Watch Urbane is currently supported, but all future models of Android Wear SmartWatches will also work on both Android and iPhone Smartphones. Android Wear will pair with an iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6 or 6 Plus running at least iOS 8.2.
It will be interesting to see how the Android Wear Watches compete with the Apple Watch on Features. Use of previous Smartwatches that “supported” iOS also meant a limited feature set. The Official Google Blog indicates that you will be able to check information like phone calls, messages and notifications from your favorite apps with just a glance. Fitness goals will also be supported. However, no details were provided of whether responses will be possible using an Android Wear Watch.
More to come as details develop. For now download the Android Wear App if you have an LG Watch Urbane or visit the Google Blog for more information.
The August monthly meeting for iPlugDelaware will be held at 7:30 am on Tuesday August 18, 2015, at the Panera Bread in the Fairfax Shopping Center (2311 Concord Pike, Wilmington, DE 19803). The meeting will be held in the community room in the back of the restaurant. Meetings normally last about one hour and are held on the third Tuesday of each month. As a reminder, our meetings are free to attend, no registration is needed, and the meetings are open to anyone that works in the legal community.
This month we will again discuss the upcoming release of iOS 9, the recent update of iOS 8.4.1, and rumors about the next version of the iPhone (expected to be announced next month). We will also show off some of our favorite productivity apps, and have plenty of time for questions or demonstrations of apps from those in attendance.
We look forward to another great meeting, and encourage anyone that has been considering attending, to stop in for your first meeting. Please feel free to attend even if you do not currently have an iPad or iPhone, but you are curious on how the devices may improve your practice.
