If you’ve ever felt bested by technology, you’re certainly not the only person out there! As more comes out, it all seems to get more confusing.
However, you’ll be happy to learn that it doesn’t have to be that way. With the right support to help you, you can accomplish your technology goals.
If you’ve set your sets on successfully pairing your Apple Watch with your new iPhone, you’re in the right spot!
Here’s what you’re going to want to know.
Put on your Apple Watch
When you put your watch on your wrist, make sure it’s comfortable to wear. It shouldn’t chafe or cut, but still be tight enough to get a good read on your stats, which is a huge part of what the Apple Watch is all about.
When you’ve got your watch on and it’s comfortable, turn it on by pressing the side button until the Apple logo pops up.
The pairing process
There are three ways that you can pair your Apple Watch with your new iPhone, so let’s take a look at both of them so that you can decide which is easiest for you based on where you’re starting from.
● Using Cloud: If you’ve already had your Apple Watch synced to your iCloud, all you have to do is set up your new iPhone using the backup of your data from your old iPhone. When asked if you want to sync your Apple Watch with your new iPhone, you’ll need to approve it. When this is done, you’ll need to enter your phone’s passcode on your Apple Watch.
● Through the Apple Watch app: If you forgot to back up or save your Apple Watch data, or you don’t restore from a backup for your iPhone, you can open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and tap the “Pair New Watch” button, which will prompt you through the pairing exercises.
● Manually through proximity between your iPhone and Apple Watch: If you don’t want to do either of those options, you can simply place your new iPhone next to your booted up Apple Watch and the pairing screen will appeal on your iPhone to connect them.
What is the best option?
It comes down to personal preference for most people. However, if you are pairing specifically with a new iPhone after backing up your Apple Watch data, you’ll find it easiest to do it through iCloud. All of the syncing and data transfer is done at the same time as your iPhone itself, so it can save extra hassle and frustration.
While technology can be complicated, you’ll probably find that pairing your Apple Watch with your new iPhone is going to be amongst the easiest options, just because Apple makes it easy to do. It’s nice to know that not everything is going to take hours of effort and even more frustration, right? All that’s left now is to pick which technique you love most and try it out to see for yourself how easy it is!
