A report from French publication 01net indicates that Google is working on bringing Android Wear compatibility to iPhone and iPad, and will be making the announcement at Google I/O later this year. 

However, depending on the popularity of Apple Watch, Google might be forced to bring forward the announcement to prevent it from cannibalizing the sales of Android Wear powered smartwatches. If true, this news should please iPhone owners who are not interested in the Apple Watch, but prefer Android Wear running watches like the Moto 360.

As things stand right now, it is only possible to use Android Wear smartwatches with devices running Android 4.3+.

Last month, a video showing an iPhone connected to a Android Wear smartwatch went viral on the Internet clearly showing that many iPhone owners are interested in using their handset with a smartwatch powered by Google’s Android Wear.
