Apple hopes to stimulate, in the event of WWDC, developers to create more apps for Apple Watch

It seems that the developer's interest is more focused on creating applications for the Apple TV Apple Watch for reportedly providing Realm .

Realm hosts a database of applications used by about 100,000 developers and contains details of applications used by around 1 million people, giving a unique view of what devices capture greater interest in mobile developers over time.

The Apple TV had gained more interest among developers since the release of the fourth generation devices and the launch of a dedicated App Store in October 2015. Meanwhile, developers are not very interested in Apple clock, seeing it more as a companion for the iPhone.

"TVOS is a new platform so there is a gold rush , " said vice president of Realm, Anglade. "But on a weekly basis, we see emerging very few applications for the Apple Watch, compared with applications for iOS. For every 1,000 new iOS applications are 10 to TVOS and maybe 1 for the clock. "

Apple does not provide separate sales figures for the smart watch, but market research suggests that the device has finished third in the global market for personal accessories in the first months of 2016.

It is expected that the current situation changes, when at last the launch of the next smartwatch is of and applications that can open independently so that the clock offers more opportunities for developers to create applications.

Developers originally had limited access to the features Apple clock using WatchOS 1 and could not access the access gyroscope, accelerometer, NFC, built-in speaker, microphone and motor Taptic device. All that changed with the release of watchOS 2 and from June this year, all Apple Watch app must run natively, instead of relying on an iPhone.

It is expected that the Cupertino company a demonstration of the next version of watchOS in the WWDC event and thus try to stimulate the interest of developers.
