EXCLUSIVE: Rogers May Be FINALLY About To Provide Support For The Apple Watch

For months now, I have been writing about the lack of Apple Watch Support by Rogers along with their total mishandling of the situation. With no timeline, no clear statement from the telco in red about what their plans were about if they would ever provide support for Apple’s wearable device, many people trashed Rogers on Twitter and many others bolted to Bell and Telus who both have support for the Apple Watch. In my case, I bolted to Telus.

But it now seems that maybe Rogers is going to be finally providing support for the Apple Watch. A reader of this blog provided me this URL which I promptly went to and screen shotted. If you click on the picture and enlarge it, and check the above circled area, the URL is “https://www.rogers.com/consumer/wireless/apple-watch-series-4”. Not only that, if you look at the circled area, you’ll see that the page is titled Apple Watch Series 4.

What this appears to be is a placeholder of some sort that is meant to be filled with whatever Apple announces in a couple of weeks. It’s also clear that their webmaster screwed up as this likely was not intended to be visible to the public. Thus we can draw two conclusions from this. It implies, and the key word is implies that Rogers will support the Apple Watch. Not only that, it implies that they will likely sell it as well. It also says that Rogers saying for months as to the fact that support for eSIM devices would come in 2018 was accurate. Now there’s no timeframe as to when this support could show up as it could be on the day that Apple launches their latest watch, or it could be much later. But it’s something.

Now I have been around long enough to not even to bother asking Rogers to comment on this. But if they want to tell their customers who have waited for a very long time for anything that makes them not bolt from the carrier, please do. I think they deserve that much. In the meantime, I’ll be watching developments very closely to see what comes next.

UPDATE: A reader alerted me that the link has been removed. But too bad for Rogers that screenshots live forever.
