The iPhone hasn’t been supported since Wear OS 3 and the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 were released together. That is still the case, and is much more so given the lack of a Wear OS 3 device at this time. However, according to a recent claim from Wareable , the Montblanc Summit 3 will support the iPhone.
There has been considerable suspicion that Wear OS will no longer support iPhones in general as the Galaxy Watch 4 does not support iOS devices. However, it doesn’t appear to be the case. The Montblanc Summit 3 will support the iPhone, according to Qualcomm, and it will have Wear OS 3 loaded.
Therefore, more products with the same compatibility could be introduced in the future. In terms of compatibility, it appears that Samsung’s hardware or software, rather than the Wear OS 3 platform, is to blame for the absence of iOS support.

Additionally, the Summit 3 won’t exactly be a cheap smartwatch. However, iPhone owners are definitely the ones who are most inclined to spend more money on a companion gadget like a wristwatch.
The Montblanc Summit 3 is the only gadget that will support iOS, therefore cheaper alternatives aren’t available at this time. Specifically, companies with names like Fossil, Mobvoi, Motorola, Skagen, and Michael Kors. All of these solutions have often provided smartwatches for less than $350. Compared to the Montblanc Summit 3’s anticipated $1,250 price.
Even while only Montblanc has stated that its new Wear OS gadget supports iOS, it seems doubtful that all other manufacturers will exclude iOS consumers. Simply said, it doesn’t make sense for all other brands to forego assistance when one brand offers it.
