All Apple Watch apps must be Native Apps starting soon

Apple informed developers that starting on June 1, 2016, all watchOS apps submitted to the App Store must be native apps built with the watchOS 2 SDK or later.

WatchOS apps are more reliant on the iPhone to run on the Apple Watch presently, but with watchOS 2, Apple introduced support for native apps. With native app support, developers can build apps that are able to run on the Apple Watch, without relying on your iPhone.

Apple’s June 1 deadline is just two weeks before the company’s Worldwide Developers Conference, where it is expected to show off new versions of iOS, OS X, watchOS, and tvOS.
