The app needs to help us manage data in 3 places
The new Apple Watch 3 had a feature which tells a tale of the future of your relationship with your phone company is going to change. It could connect directly to the internet without the need for a physical SIM should insert. Some phone companies issued a new ‘product’ to support the device. For a flat monthly charge, they allowed you to share the data between your iPhone plan and your Apple Watch.
The Apple Watch is an example of one thing which sits in our ‘Personal Area Network.’ Others will include health monitoring products in the near future and all manner of extras in the future. Think of internet-connected contact lenses in the future and your child having a sensor in their clothes so you know where they are if they wander off at the supermarket.
The internet of things is already connecting almost literally everything to the internet. Lights and the fabled internet connected fridge will likely get online to WiFi. However, personal assets, which roam more broadly, cars, boats and perhaps children (or at least their backpacks) will connect with SIMs, use data and need managing.
There are already phone plans which offer shared data facilities. Your child can divide 5GB of data, while you get 5GB a month. Then, when they run out, you can provide them more, from your handset, as you see fit.
