Truphone now supports Apple Watch Family Setup

LONDON, Sept. 17, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Truphone is today proud to announce it is offering cellular service for Family Setup, which allows kids and older family members of the household who do not have iPhone to enjoy Apple Watch.

Truphone's plans connect customers for Family Setup in the USA, UK, Germany, France, Spain, Poland and Hong Kong. For complete pricing and availability details, please visit the Truphone website

Apple introduced Family Setup in watchOS 7[1], 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 will be available with watchOS 7 and iOS 14, and requires cellular models of Apple Watch Series 4 or later or Apple Watch SE, paired with iPhone 6s or later.

For more details on how to connect Family Setup for Apple Watch using Truphone, check out our how-to article and product video here.
