I had a question for anyone running the WatchOS 6 Beta. I was looking at the new cellular watches and it states that they can text and call without being near the paired iPhone. That used to come with a disclaimer that text messages, green bubble, required the paired iPhone to be powered on and connected to the network. I don’t see that disclaimer anywhere on the web page now, so I thought they may have finally added the ability for the watch to send text messages directly. So the question is this, can you send text messages and receive them with the iPhone powered off?
