I didn't find anything related to Family Setup here so my question is: Can we expect Apple Family Setup feature for Apple Watch this year?
Hello and welcome @veilofsun!
We don't have any information at this time to share. Please stay tuned to this space for announcements on upcoming features.
We will certainly make an official announcement or blog post to announce the launch of a feature like Family Sharing before it arrives.
I hope this feature will come to Rogers soon enough as several friends have commented on putting their children or elderly relatives on an Apple Watch but do not want them to have the trouble of managing an iPhone with it. Family Setup is exactly what they need.
Good evening Community!
Previously, the Family Setup for Apple Watch was not available in Canada. Family Setup in watchOS 7 lets family members who don't have their own iPhone enjoy the features and benefits of an Apple Watch. Some Apple Watch features depend on having a companion iPhone, and aren't available on an Apple Watch that you pair using Family Setup.
Hope this helps!
Welcome to the Rogers Community Forums!
For further clarification, it seems like the Family Setup is built into the watchOS7. As per the article provided by @RogersMaude, you will just need to ensure you meet the requirements below to benefit from the Family Setup.
Let us know how it goes if you decide to use this handy new feature.
My wife received the new watch 6 and i was able to family setup my daughter on her old watch 4 and it works using wifi but it won't let me setup cellular service to it using rogers. Gives me
"The rogers account on this iphone cannot be used to add cellular plan to "apple watch". visit https://www.apple.com/watch/cellular for more information about apple watch cellular plans."
We have looked into this and inquired with our second level of support. It looks like the Apple Family Setup is not supported on the Rogers network.
We will keep the Community informed if this changes in the future.
