Unlock Apple Watch with iPhone

I’ve had an Apple Watch for some time now, and am a very happy user. Being fairly security and privacy conscious, I immediately set it up with a pin code, meaning that it locks when I take it off, and prompts me for a pin code when I try to access it. This is a very nice feature, and one which I haven’t really seen too much of, due to another feature which unlocks the Apple Watch when unlocking your iPhone. It was either on by default, or I set it up when setting up the Apple Watch. Either way, if you want to change this setting one way or another, here’s how:

On your iPhone:

  1. Open the Watch app
  2. Scroll down to Passcode
  3. Change the setting under Unlock with iPhone to your liking

On your Apple Watch:

  1. Open the Settings app
  2. Scroll down to, and tap, Passcode
  3. Change the setting under Unlock with iPhone to your liking

Whichever method you choose, either of these methods should see you sorted.
