Here we have made a guide for you to unlock Apple Watch every single time you unlock your connected iPhone using either Touch ID or a passcode.
The Apple Watch is equipped with security measures to keep your device safe after you remove it from your wrist. For example, Wrist Detection will put your watch in total lockdown secured with a password to keep your data safe. So every time you put your watch back on you will have to enter a passcode to unlock it. It isn’t a very convenient approach. But there is another way to unlock your watch just as simple as unlocking your iPhone. All you have to do is follow these steps.
You Apple Watch must have a passcode in place, and your iPhone must be set to use Touch ID and passcode as well, follow the given steps.
1. Launch the Watch app on your iPhone.
2. Tap on Passcode.
3. Turn on the Unlock with iPhone toggle switch.
4. Enter your Apple Watch passcode on the wearable when asked for it.
And it’s done. Whenever you unlock your iPhone using Touch ID, your Apple Watch will be unlocked too.
The unlocking part can entirely be excluded by removing security passcode, but that isn’t recommended. Your Apple Watch has important details on it that may be put to wrong use if in the wrong hands.
