Welcome to this tutorial on how to delete your Apple Watch from your iPhone. If you no longer use your Apple Watch or want to pair it with a different iPhone, you’ll need to remove it from your current iPhone. Follow the steps below to successfully delete your Apple Watch from your iPhone.
Before You Begin
Before we dive into the steps, make sure that:
- You have both your iPhone and Apple Watch nearby.
- Your iPhone is running on the latest version of iOS.
- Your Apple Watch is charged and connected to its charger.
Step 1: Open the Apple Watch App
To start the process, locate and open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone. This app allows you to manage all aspects of your Apple Watch, including pairing and unpairing.
Step 2: Access My Watch Tab
Once you are in the Apple Watch app, tap on the “My Watch” tab at the bottom of the screen. This tab gives you an overview of all settings related to your watch.
Step 3: Choose Your Apple Watch
In the “My Watch” tab, you will see a list of all paired watches. Tap on the “i” icon next to the watch that you want to delete. This will take you to a detailed view of that particular watch’s settings.
Step 4: Unpair Your Apple Watch
In this detailed view, scroll down until you find an option called “Unpair Apple Watch”. Tap on it.
Unpairing your Apple Watch will automatically create a backup of your watch’s data on your iPhone. This backup can be used to restore the watch to its previous state if you decide to pair it again in the future.
Step 5: Confirm Unpairing
A confirmation message will appear, asking you to confirm that you want to unpair your Apple Watch. Read the message and tap on “Unpair (your watch name)” to proceed.
Unpairing your Apple Watch will erase all data on it, so make sure you have a recent backup if there’s any important data that you want to keep.
Step 6: Enter Your Apple ID Password
To prevent accidental unpairing, you may be prompted to enter your Apple ID password. Enter the password associated with your Apple ID and tap on “Unpair”.
Step 7: Wait for the Process to Complete
The unpairing process may take a few minutes. Keep both devices close together and wait for the process to complete. Once it’s done, you’ll see a message confirming that your Apple Watch has been successfully unpaired from your iPhone.
You have successfully deleted your Apple Watch from your iPhone. You are now free to pair it with a different iPhone or set up a new one if needed.
