Developers reportedly losing interest in Apple Watch

Apple logoThe Apple Watch is the first smartwatch that Apple has ever made. The wearable device has performed quite well in the market, launching Apple to the top of this market, but it appears that developers are losing interest in this device. A new report suggests that developers aren’t really convinced that making apps of the Apple Watch is worth their time until apps can run independently on the device.

Business Insider reports, citing a company that provides mobile databases to more than 100,000 app developers, that very few Watch apps are coming up on a weekly basis as opposed to iOS apps.

Developers reportedly losing interest in Apple Watch

It’s said that for every 1,000 new iOS apps being built, 1 Watch app is being developed, revealing that developers are not too enthusiastic about the wearable device until their apps have more independence on it.

Developers may not be too interested in the wearable device until Apple provides it with the ability to run apps independently of the iPhone. Perhaps the company might announce such a step next month at the Worldwide Developers Conference, an annual event where it makes software-related announcements.

It’s also possible that the company might not make this happen until the Apple Watch 2 arrives, which many expect will be unveiled later this year in the fall.
