David Smith, an indie iOS and OS X developer in Virginia, published a great, thoughtful writeup on what he expects to see for developers in the Apple Watch, both later this month and later next year. Smith summarizes what the initial rollout of WatchKit, scheduled for sometime this month, will offer to developers (seemingly feature parity with Android Wear devices, for better or worse). He then postulates, smartly, that when Apple says developers will be able to build native apps "later next year," that means we can expect to see an early build of WatchOS(?) 2.0, and a fully-featured WatchKit SDK at WWDC.

Check out his writeup for more details, screenshots, and more.

Best,
Aaron
