Alors qu’Apple va présenter plus en détail Apple Watch lundi prochain, iOS 8.2 qui est nécessaire à son utilisation, devrait être disponible dès lundi.

Apple Watch ne peut pas fonctionner sans l’iPhone, qu’on se le dise. Et iOS 8.2 embarque une application dédiée à Apple Watch. Espérons au passage que nous pourrons la supprimer si nous ne nous équipons pas de la montre d’Apple.

Les développeurs ont reçu la version finale ainsi que les employés d’Apple. Tout est prêt… mais ne vous emballez pas : hormis la compatibilité avec la Apple Watch, il y aura des corrections de bugs mais aucune autre nouvelle fonctionnalité. On notera des améliorations sensibles pour l’app santé.

Et évidemment, le jailbreak ne sera plus opérationnel sur iOS 8.2 en attendant l’exploitation de nouvelles failles.
