Developers can now start working on Apple Watch software

Apple announced on Tuesday that it is making an Apple Watch software development kit available to developers, as had been promised during Apple’s recent iPad launch event. Developers can download the iOS 8.2 SDK beta — which includes WatchKit — from Apple’s developer website.

Even though the SDK is now available, most developers won’t get to try out their apps and software on an actual Apple Watch yet. Apple’s smartwatch is expected to launch early next year.
