His latest tweets show the Moto 360 is capable of delivering low battery alerts, time syncing, and even controlling music when paired with an iPhone. Many have been wondering if and when this capability would be made public, or how difficult it might be to implement. Now thanks to a major discovery, it looks as though Android Wear will get official iOS support in the near future.

Android Moto 360 Gets iPhone Notifications

Android Wear devices such as the Moto 360 aren't known for their compatibility with the iPhone. This could all change in the future, thanks in no small part to developer @MohammadAG. In a proof of concept, he was able to successfully display notifications on the Moto 360 directly from an iPhone.

What's more, the iPhone does not have to be jailbroken to make this work. The process utilizes Apple Notification Center Service (ANCS), which makes iOS notifications accessible to third-party accessories via Bluetooth. One example of a smartwatch that already uses this method to display iPhone notifications is the Pebble Watch.
