    I tried to send a drawing to my wife's watch and it worked but said it was from my daughters phone. My daughter does not have a watch. So when my wife replied with her heartbeat I received it but it was also listed as from my daughters phone. I tried deleting my daughters contact info, restarting everything, and turning off iCloud. Nothing has resolved this glitch. I think I discovered the new #gate.

    I sent a digital touch pic to a friend and when she replied it came from another number - her husband's, I think. Does your family use a shared iTunes/Apple ID?

    Yes there are my 4 kids and my wife and I sharing 1 iTunes account! It's pretty crazy but we have it running smooth except for this watch issue but since we are the only 2 with watches (for now) I know if it's a digital touch message who it really came from. Phone calls and messages say they are from my wife so it's a glitch with the digital touch I think.

    It'll probably get sorted out with an update. I'm sure we'll be seeing a few in the next few months as they sort out the bugs.

    That'll give plenty of time for an overblown "-gate" issue to arise.

    It wouldn't be an Apple launch without some sort of "-gate" issue! :cool:

    Check the iCloud/iTunes account and see whose name is listed.

    Aren't "gate" problems typically hardware-related? Minor software problems can easily be fixed with an update or a workaround can be used. Family sharing is a better option than sharing an Apple ID due to several problems associated with sharing an account.

    No "Gate" problems are problems Nixon had in the 70's. The rest are wannabes. Gate is so way overused.

    And most of those kids have no idea of the origin of the term.

    Same for many adults I'm afraid to say.

    Yesterday I explained what the Cold War was to a young adult who'd never heard of it.

    Yeah, I know where it originated and I think its usage in regards to iPhone problems is as lame as you do. My point was just that this problem isn't big enough to become one.

    Thanks Europa we set up Family Sharing and it fixed this problem. Good call!
