Google is rolling out Android Wear, its wearables operating system, for iOS so that people with iPhones can use their devices along with devices like Android watches.

Android Wear now supports iPhone 5, 5c, 5s, 6, and 6 Plus running iOS 8.2+.

In a post on the official Google blog, the company says, "When you wear something every day, you want to be sure it really works for you. That’s why Android Wear offers countless design choices, so you can find the watch that fits your style. Want a round watch with a more classic look? Feel like a new watch band? How about changing things up every day with watch faces from artists and designers? With Android Wear you can do all of that. And now, Android Wear watches work with iPhones."


For now, Android Wear for iOS just works with the LG Watch Urbane, but all future Android Wear watches, including models from Huawei, Asus, and Motorola, will support iOS.
