How to unlock your phone with an app on your smartwatch
iOS 9 is coming to the iPhone, and it’s going to take some time for the two versions of the software to converge.
Apple is also rolling out the ability for people to buy a new Apple Watch, a new version of iOS, and more.
But here are the best ways to use your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to unlock a phone and send messages without the help of an app.1.
Install a new iPhone on your Apple Watch.
If you’re planning on using the Watch for more than one purpose, this is the easiest way to do it.
Go to Settings > General > General Data Usage and then tap on “Device Storage.”
Tap on the “Device” option.2.
Plug in an iPod touch.
This is easy to do.
You’ll need to download an app for the Watch, such as Messages, Messages for iPhone, Messages on Apple Watch or Messages on Android.3.
Install an iPhone app on a different smartwatch.
If your Apple TV or Apple TV Stick doesn’t work with an iPhone, you can still get to the same information by downloading an app, such in Messages on an iPhone.4.
Plug the iPhone into an iOS device.
You should have an Apple TV on your iPhone to receive the notifications.
To get to Messages on your iOS device, plug it into the Watch.
The Messages app can be used to send messages to your iPhone.5.
Plug your iPhone into your iPad.
Once you’ve installed an iPhone on a smartwatch, you’ll need an iPad for Messages.6.
Plug an iPad into your iPhone and use the Siri app.
If it doesn’t recognize the iPhone or iPad, use the built-in Siri to send your message.7.
Plug a second iPhone into the iPhone.
If the iPhone on the other side doesn’t know the name of your second iPhone, or the name is the same as your first, or both of your iPhones don’t work, use a third-party app to add the device.8.
Install the Apple Watch app.
Once Messages on iOS or Messages for iPad is installed, tap on the Apple watch icon.9.
Use Siri to dial your phone.
You can use Siri to call your phone, enter a phone number, or use the “call” option in Messages.10.
Tap the message you want to send.
Siri will ask you what you want it to do, and you can type in your message or send it by sending it to your iCloud Drive or by pressing the “Send” button.11.
When the message is sent, Siri will automatically download the file and send it to the recipient’s device.
The recipient will get an alert with an image and a notification in the Messages app.12.
Tap on a message and it will display a picture of the message on your watch.
Tap anywhere on the message to see the other messages on the watch.
