Apple to roll out WatchKit for developers in November

Apple wants developers to start tinkering and creating apps for its new smartwatch ASAP. So, the company's launching WatchKit in November, a few months before the upcoming wearable starts shipping early next year. WatchKit, along with HomeKit and HealthKit, is part of the company's larger effort to open up its devices to third-party devs, allowing them to create new features for its lineup. This lets companies, like banks and hotels, among others, provide apps that customers can use the moment they unbox their new Apple gadgets.
