Apple Asks Developers to Submit watchOS Apps to Apple Watch App Store

Apple today asked developers to begin building, testing, and submitting watchOS 6 apps for inclusion in the new standalone Apple Watch App Store.





Starting with <!---->watchOS 6<!---->, developers are able to distribute apps built solely for the <!---->Apple Watch<!----> without a companion app on iOS. Apple was not previously accepting standalone <!---->Apple Watch<!----> submissions and has also updated its watchOS site for developers.

<!---->Apple Watch<!----> apps can be installed from the <!---->Apple Watch<!----> <!---->App Store<!----> directly on the wrist even when an iPhone isn't available.
With <!---->watchOS 6<!---->, customers around the world can use the new <!---->App Store<!----> on <!---->Apple Watch<!----> to easily discover, browse, search, and install apps directly on their wrist. And for the first time, you can distribute an app just for <!---->Apple Watch<!---->, without a companion app on iOS. Build your watchOS apps using Xcode 11 GM seed, test them on devices running the latest <!---->watchOS 6<!----> GM seed, and submit them for review.
Apple says that starting in April 2020, all new watchOS apps and app updates submitted to the <!---->App Store<!----> will need to be built with the <!---->watchOS 6<!----> SDK and support the <!---->Apple Watch<!----> Series 4 or later.





<!---->watchOS 6<!----> with standalone <!---->App Store<!----> is set to launch on the Series 3 and Series 4 <!---->Apple Watch<!----> models on Thursday, September 19. It will be available for Series 1 and Series 2 <!---->Apple Watch<!----> models later in the year.





The <!---->Apple Watch<!----> Series 5, which launches on Friday, September 20, will come with <!---->watchOS 6<!----> installed.
