The month of September is always very propitious for many users to change their iPhone for one of the new models, obviously all caused by the usual launch of the different generations. This causes many others to have to re-synchronize their Apple Watch with this new device. Therefore, in this post we are going to tell you how you can do it easily without problems.
One of the most lazy processes for all users to do is change from one iPhone to another, and this is even worse if you have an Apple Watch, since you will have to re-link or synchronize it with your new iPhone . To do this, there is two different ways, on the one hand you can restore your Apple Watch to link it from scratch with your new iPhone, or, thanks to the opportunity that Apple gives to transfer the data from one iPhone to another, also transfer the synchronization of the Apple Watch from one device to another , so you don’t have to start over with the Apple Watch as well. Obviously, in this post we are going to explain both options.
Sync your Apple Watch from scratch
The first option and the one that is best known is just this, to restore the Apple Watch, thus unlinking it from the “old” iPhone and being able to link and synchronize it from scratch with the new iPhone. In this way you will have to reinstall all the applications, modify all the settings again, and even recreate your favorite spheres, since in the end it will be how to have the Apple Watch completely new. For this you just have to follow the following steps.
- On your Apple Watch, open Settings.
- Accede to General.
- Click on «Restore«.
- Choose “Delete contents and settings«.
- On your new iPhone, open the Watch app.
- Click on link a new Apple Watch.
- Follow the steps that appear on the screen.
Transfer your Apple Watch to the new iPhone
Let’s go now with the most comfortable option, since With barely touching anything you can keep your Apple Watch as you have it now, but synchronized with your new iPhone, yes, you will condition its configuration. The advantage it offers is that in this way you will not have to restore the clock, and obviously you will not have to reinstall applications and configure it from scratch.
The Cupertino company, when configuring a new iPhone, has the option of «Quick start«, and within this it gives you the option of transfer the data and information from one iPhone to another. Well, within this configuration, you will not only be able to transfer the information from one iPhone to another, but it will also allow you to transfer your Apple Watch sync. When you select this option, the watch will emit a small vibration, and then it will ask you to enter the unlock code. After this the process will last a few minutes. Now, you have to take into account a series of essential requirements For this process to be carried out, we leave them below.
- The iPhone and Apple Watch must be linked to the same Apple ID.
- The Apple Watch has to be protected by a code.
- Both the iPhone and the Apple Watch must have at least 50% battery.
- Both iPhones have to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.
