Samsung shared today that its flagship smartwatch, the Gear S2, will support iOS devices by the end of 2016.

Samsung announced the news today during its CES keynote in Las Vegas. The move lacks surprise — iOS support was already rumored to arrive by the end of 2015. Now it’s official, although we have no idea how long we’ll have to wait, nor do we know how comprehensive the integration will be.

In addition to the upcoming iOS support, Samsung debuted two new colors for the S2 smartwatch: gold (obviously) and platinum. The company also shared that support for Samsung Pay — Samsung’s Android Pay and Apple Pay competitor — is coming to the S2 smartwatch soon.
