Truphone to support apple watch family setup in Australia
Truphone launches cellular service for Family Setup in watchOS 7 to customers in Australia for the first time
Its annual and monthly plans are built specifically for Apple Watch Family Setup
Starting today, Truphone is offering cellular service for Family Setup, which allows family members who do not have an iPhone to enjoy Apple Watch. Truphone also supports Family Setup in Germany, France, Poland, Spain, the UK and the USA.
Ralph Steffens, CEO, Truphone said: “We at Truphone are delighted to once again support the latest Apple innovation after many successful years of offering connectivity plans on iPad and through My Truphone, our eSIM-powered app for iPhone. Truphone is always hard at work to build affordable plans especially for families —already offering robust cellular connection in key markets across the world — which is why we’re so excited to be supporting Family Setup. This is a great solution for customers to stay in regular contact with younger children or elderly parents and be reassured of their safety —using the best wearable device on the market. Truphone’s trusted and reliable global network is perfectly placed to support this groundbreaking Apple Watch feature, helping all generations to stay connected.”
Apple introduced Family Setup in watchOS 7, bringing the communication, health, fitness, and safety features of Apple Watch to kids and older family members of the household who do not have an iPhone. For the first time, Apple Watch can be set up through a parent’s iPhone, so kids can enjoy its fun and useful tools while parents have peace of mind knowing they can reach their child and identify their location, and that all personal data stays securely encrypted. Kids and older family members using Family Setup will have their own phone number through a separate cellular plan. Family Setup is available with watchOS 7 and iOS 14 and later. The feature requires cellular models of Apple Watch Series 4 or later or Apple Watch SE, paired with iPhone 6s or later.
Designed specifically for the needs of Apple Watch customers, Truphone’s unlimited Apple Watch plan enables customers to pay on an annual or monthly basis with no hidden costs and one flat fee. This makes Truphone’s cellular plans for Apple Watch especially appealing for those who want to get started with Family Setup. Every plan comes with a 7-day free trial per Apple Watch, which includes unlimited data, voice minutes and SMS, and a separate phone number for each Apple Watch. It also offers fast 4G data speeds and voice calls with no lock-in contract. Truphone makes the experience of connecting multiple Apple Watches through your iPhone as simple and seamless as possible.
