If you’ve recently purchased a new iPhone and want to pair your Apple Watch with it, you may be wondering how to do it. It’s important to note that you cannot use an old device to pair your new watch. But if you have lost the pairing information from your old phone, it is possible to manually pair the Apple Watch with a new phone.
Unpairing an Apple Watch
Unpairing an Apple Watch with a replacement iPhone requires a few steps. First, make sure that the Apple Watch and iPhone are close to each other. From there, open the Apple Watch app on the iPhone. Next, select the My Watch tab. Make sure that you haven’t paired the Apple Watch with any Apple Pay cards or passed on the passcode.
After this, you should see a list of your watches. Select the watch you’d like to unpair. The “i” information icon should appear next to it. You’ll need to enter your Apple ID password to complete the unpairing process.
Re-pairing an Apple Watch
If you’ve accidentally unpaired your Apple Watch from an older phone, don’t worry; there’s an easy way to pair it with a new one. First, ensure that your watch is connected to Wi-Fi and has a charge of at least 50 percent. Next, open the Watch app on your old iPhone and make sure that Health and Activity are turned on. Tap the My Watch tab, tap the All Watches button, and tap the I button next to the device.
If your watch still won’t pair, you can try resetting it. Depending on the device, this might solve the pairing issue. But remember that resetting the watch will also wipe all the saved data, so make sure that you back up your data first. You can then pair your Apple Watch with your new phone by following these steps:
Manually pairing an Apple Watch
To pair your Apple Watch with a new phone, you need to have an iPhone 6S or later that has iOS version 13 or higher. First, open the Apple Watch app on your phone. Enter the passcode and grant permissions to connect the devices. It may take a few minutes to complete this process, but once you’ve finished, you can go ahead and pair your Apple Watch with your new phone.
To manually pair your Apple Watch to a new phone, you need to turn the Apple Watch on and hold it close to the iPhone. The watch will show a message when the device is close to each other. Once the devices are connected, you can then scan the watch’s display with your iPhone. This will display the Apple logo.
Manually pairing an Apple Watch with a new phone
The first step in manually pairing an Apple Watch with a new phone is to open the Apple Watch application on the new phone. The watch should display several “i” icons. Press the first one to start the pairing process. Other icons provide further information or generate a sync code. The first “i” icon should be at the bottom right of the initial setup screen.
Before pairing the Watch, you must make sure that your iPhone is compatible with Bluetooth. It is also necessary to make sure that your iPhone is updated to iOS 13 or later. Depending on the iOS version, the process may take a few minutes. After the process is complete, you can safely pair the Apple Watch with your new phone.
Transferring health data from an Apple Watch to a new phone
There are several ways to transfer your health data from an Apple Watch to a different phone. The first option is by using iCloud. With the help of iCloud, you can transfer data from your iPhone to your Apple Watch. But before using iCloud to transfer data, it is a good idea to back up your whole iPhone first. This way, you can ensure that all your health data is safe.
After backing up your iPhone, pair the new phone with your Apple Watch. This keeps the Activity data flowing to your Health database and keeps the notifications flowing to your watch. However, if you want to use an older iPhone, you will need to unpair your Apple Watch from the old phone.
