Does Telstra support Apple Watch Family Setup?

Answered

in IOS 14, Apple Supports a Family Setup for an Apple Watch (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT211768) whereby you can setup an Apple Watch for a child connected to a parent's iPhone.  I've tried to setup a Watch for my child this morning and it said my carrier didn't support this.  When will Telstra support this?

It's a very new feature, so it may be a while. Keep an eye out at exchange.telstra.com for any announcements.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

No. It's not offered in Australia yet.

l bought the Apple Watch for my 8 year old not realizing it was not in Australia yet. Went to Apple yesterday and they told me possible end of November it should be here in Australia. But could not get definite dates. He also said that Telstra were often behind Optus and Vodaphone so those carriers may get it before Telstra
