How to pair Apple Watch to new phone

Share for love:

Pairing an Apple watch with a new phone is not a difficult task. To pair Apple Watch with a new iPhone, follow these steps:

  1. Backup your old iPhone: Before pairing your Apple Watch with a new iPhone, make sure you’ve backed up your old iPhone to iCloud or iTunes so that your Apple Watch data is also backed up.
  2. Unpair from the old iPhone: On your old iPhone, open the Apple Watch app, go to the “My Watch” tab, tap on your watch at the top of the screen, then tap the “info” icon (looks like a lowercase “i”), and finally tap “Unpair Apple Watch”. You may need to enter your Apple ID password to turn off the Activation Lock. This process will erase your Apple Watch and disconnect it from your old iPhone.
  3. Pair with the new iPhone:

  2. Complete the setup: Follow any additional prompts on your iPhone and Apple Watch to complete the setup process.

Once the setup is complete, your Apple Watch should be paired with your new iPhone, and you can start using it as usual.
