The Apple Watch Series 6 will have a feature called Family Setup. This allows parents to set up their children’s watch to help them track their location and control who they interact with using iMessage. However, for the feature to work, it requires a cellular version of the Apple Watch, but the child doesn’t need to have an iPhone.
Apple unveiled the smartwatch at its annual product announcement event. The event was a virtual one due to the coronavirus pandemic and the social distancing guidelines. Apple also unveiled its latest iPad and Apple One bundles of services but the iPhone 12 was not announced.
The iPhone was expected to be the first one that supports superfast 5G wireless technology. However, its absence at the event could be because the company could not make enough phones to keep up with expectedly huge demand.
The Apple Watch Series 6 will be powered by the WatchOS 7. The software has new capabilities for watch faces, easier ways to share the watch faces you make, and a new feature to help track your sleep.
