I made an iOS/Apple Watch app with WatchKit 1.0 that uses a shared group container and a custom framework to access the same Core Data store. Now, in the transition guide for watchOS 2.0, Apple says this:
If your existing Watch app and iOS app use a shared group container or iCloud to exchange data, you must change the way you exchange that data in watchOS 2. Because the WatchKit extension now runs on Apple Watch, the extension must exchange data with the iOS app wirelessly. You can do that using an NSURLSession object or using the Watch Connectivity framework, which supports bidirectional communication between your iOS app and WatchKit extension.
How does this work with Core Data, though? Do I need to maintain two separate stores, one in the Documents folder on the watch and one on the phone, and use the Watch Connectivity framework to sync the changes? I see that watchOS 2.0 can access the Core Data framework (it's in the list of Available Technologies)...but I'm just not sure how that helps when the store is located on the phone. Any help/guidance is appreciated!
