How do I pair an old Watch to a new iPhone?
The unpair process crashed on the old phone.I restored using the iCloud restore (instead of the one recommended by the tweet Sam shared)
So far, I have phone service and the watch just asked to connect to the new phone, so very good so far.
If you are having problems with your old watch and new phone you will most likely have to reset the watch through its settings and then re-pair it to your new phone.
I remember having to do that in the past.
The unpair process crashed on the old phone.
The watch doesn't register the new iphone and won't go into pairing mode.
The setup system doesn't exist after initial iphone setup.
I'm resetting my Watch and will try from there.
Which on an Apple Watch 3, takes about 5 hours just to reboot...so a bit tedious.
I'm just hoping the failed unpairing didn't mangle the backup.That should work, Dave.
Go into watch settings and find reset.
Once you do that, you should be able to pair to the new phone.
Your watch has a recent backup so during the pairing/restore process it should find a recent iCloud backup to get all your watch faces and complications restored.
Except in bed. As I expected from past reviews, faceid doesn’t work with some combination: of in bed, lying on my side, at night. This is where I miss touchid.FaceID is pretty great so far. And really fast. Having it for 1Password is amazing. Glad I already bought an iPad Air last year, because now I’d have to spend up for the Pro.
