Re: LTE Apple watch support and plan
Thank you for your patience. Smiley Wink As many of you heard, we have great news!
We’re excited to announce Rogers will be carrying the all new Apple Watch 4.
Pre-order yours as early as Friday!
For those of you who may have the previous Apple Watch, you’ll be able to activate it. Our Apple Watch plans are going to be made available as of September 17th, 2018!
This means any customer who currently owns an Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) will be able to activate it as an additional line on their Share Everything plan or add it on a non-shared plan!
You must be on iOS 12 and WatchOS 5 to activate your Apple Watch.
