Many users face the problem of the Apple Watch not connecting to the iPhone, which leads to them not being able to fully use the watch’s features.
To solve this problem, it is recommended to follow these steps to connect your devices:
- Bring the iPhone close to the Apple Watch to ease the problem, because the phone and the watch are connected via Bluetooth. Then check the settings on both devices. If either device is in Airplane mode, not connected to Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth is off, the two devices will not be able to connect.
- You can check this by entering the control center of the two devices to turn on Bluetooth and Wi-Fi (their icons appear in blue), and turn off Airplane mode (which appears in orange) by swiping down from the top-right corner of the screen on the iPhone and swiping up the screen on the Apple Watch.
- Restart the devices, by pressing and holding the side lock button on the iPhone and the volume up buttons and then swiping the power button to turn off the phone, and restart the phone, keep pressing the side button until the Apple logo appears.
As for turning off the Apple Watch, just press and hold the side button and pass the power off button, and to turn it back on again just press and hold the side button.
- Reset (Reset) the Apple Watch after backing up your data, because resetting deletes all the data saved in the watch.
To do this, go to the General section of the watch’s Settings, tap Reset, and tap Erase All Content and Settings.
- Disconnect the connection between the two devices, and reconnect them, and you can do this through the Apple Watch application on the iPhone, click on All Watches, press the information button next to the Apple Watch that you want to disconnect, then press the Unpair Apple option Watch).
