Unlock your iPhone using an Apple Watch

Apple Watch continues to be more than just a watch and now a new useful feature has come to watchOS 7.4.

Apple has released a new update to the Apple Watch which has got some new features and one of the perhaps most interesting is now that you will be able to unlock your iPhone using the watch.

A function that can be useful considering that the iPhone only has Face ID and no Touch ID, which in turn means that if you wear a mouth guard, the phone can have difficulty scanning the face and the unlocking becomes “more complicated”. If you then have a watch now, you will be able to unlock the phone just by wearing the watch and near the phone.

However, it also requires that the iPhone has the latest iOS 14.5 update that was released recently, but most Apple users are usually good at updating their devices.
