We’ve been told by a trusted source that Apple isn’t planning to release iOS 8.2 until March, according to the most recent roadmap. While iOS 8.2 will bring some general improvements and fixes to the company’s mobile operating system, the big news is the support for Apple Watch.

With Apple Watch set to be released around April, it would make sense that iOS 8.2 wouldn’t be released so far ahead of it.

Select developers have reportedly also already been asked to submit Apple Watch-compatible apps for Apple to start testing, and some will most likely make an appearance at Apple’s upcoming event, during which the company will announce more details about the watch and possibly next-generation MacBook laptops as well.
