Tried to update to WatchOS 6, but the Watch is paired to an old iPhone (a 5S), and it doesn't work. Apparently WatchOS 6 requires iOS 13, which works only back to the iPhone 6S.

So, putting a line under the fact that the Watch really isn't a separate device.

I find this disturbing, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Apple refuses to be constrained by old tech as they make improvements. And it's not the first time.

Oh, well. I was planning on upgrading that phone anyway.
