With less than a month to go before the Apple Watch officially hits the market, Apple is now inviting all third-party developers to submit their watch apps for approval. The news was announced in the Apple Developer Center.
Apple also took the time to offer a comprehensive new guide on how developers can prepare their app submission for the Apple Watch.
All watch apps interact with an iPhone to send and receive information. Apple has promised later this year that developers will be able to design apps just for the wearable.
And if you’re interested in learning about other Apple Watch apps, definitely take a look at our sister site WatchAware and its comprehensive guide.
The watch will be available to preorder starting on Friday, April 10. It will officially arrive on Friday, April 24.
Prices range from $349 for the Sport model to $17,000 for the most expensive 18-karat gold Apple Watch Edition.
A mid-range Apple Watch collection, with a sapphire display cover and stainless steel exterior, ranges from $549 to $1,099. Apple will also offer a number of other additional bands for the watch.
You’ll need an iPhone 5 or later to interact with the device.
