In an unprecedented move, it seems Samsung is acquiescing to customer feedback and making their Gear S2 wearable smartwatch comaptible with rival Apple's iPhone.
The company rolled out an iOS beta program to to let the Tizen OS powered Samsung smartphone work with iPhones. Samsung has often dialed back functionality of its devices on non Samsung Galaxy devices and this move, while surprising, is absolutely necessary for the company's products to be taken seriously by curious new customers.
As far as these things go, iOS users should not expect full compatibility as functionality from the Samsung Gear S2 will likely be limited to notifications since there's no way to route app information from the iPhone to the gear. Curious Gear S2 owners can join by visiting the beta page. The program is running through to September 19. iPhone owners will need their smartphone to be running iOS 8.4 or later to take part in the program.
