Automated Setup And ICloud
It’s no longer necessary to do the unpairing-repairing dance on a new iPhone with iOS 11.2, thanks to Automatic Setup. I suggest the following, however, to ensure that your Apple Watch and iPhone are correctly transferred:
- Allow iCloud Health sync on your watch to keep it current..
- Prior to making the switch to your new iPhone, make a copy of everything on your old iPhone.
Activate Your New IPhone And Get It Running
Before you can use the Apple Watch, you must first set up your new device. In this stage, select your most recent iCloud or iTunes backup to transfer your data from your old to your new smartphone when asked if you have one.
Tap “Continue” when your iPhone asks whether you want to utilise your Apple Watch. You can manually set up your Apple Watch even if it doesn’t prompt you to do so.
Open Your New IPhone’s Apple Watch App
- Keep your iPhone and Apple Watch close at hand. Then, on your iPhone, go to the Apple Watch app.
- As soon as your iPhone asks for confirmation before it can start using your watch, just follow the on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.
- You should unpair your Apple Watch if your iPhone asks you to start pairing so that you may re-pair it.
- Your new iPhone and Apple Watch are now ready to use.

How To Switch The LTE Account On Your Apple Watch To A New IPhone
There is a good chance that you have a cellular plan for your LTE Apple Watch already set up on your iPhone. If you’re upgrading to a new iPhone, you shouldn’t have to change your plan. You’re good to go if you just follow the following instructions.
Your iPhone number and plan will not change if you upgrade to a new model (with a new SIM card inside it).
To make the transition from your old carrier to your new one as smoothly as possible, contact your new carrier. You’ll almost certainly have to:
- Call your current carrier to cancel your Apple Watch service (but not your iPhone service).
- Follow the steps provided by your new wireless provider to set up your new plan and iPhone and to transfer your old phone number (if applicable).
- Follow the above instructions to set up your Apple Watch.
- Your Apple Watch will now have a new cellular account associated with it.
Without A Backup, Here’s How You Can Move Your Apple Watch To Your New IPhone
You have two choices if you want to start over with your new iPhone and don’t have a backup.
Start from scratch on both devices if you don’t care about your Health and other data. You’ll also lose any downloaded applications and health information, like as workouts, GPS routes, heart rate data, and any achievements you’ve accrued while using those apps….
Option two: If you still want your Health data, you may utilise iCloud and iOS 11 or later to move it to a clean-installed iPhone and Apple Watch. To accomplish this, make sure the Health toggle in Settings > iCloud is turned on. To avoid having to wait too long until all of your Health data syncs, don’t remove your old iPhone until after this process is complete.
Once you’ve synchronised your health data, you may proceed to set up your Apple Watch by following the instructions below:
- To unpair your Watch, follow the steps outlined in the previous section.
- Open the Watch app on your iPhone once you’ve done configuring it. Bring your Apple Watch close to your iPhone (or vice versa) to bring up a screen similar to the AirPods pairing screen, which will then open the Watch app.
- Follow the directions given to you: How to connect your iPhone with your Apple Watch
