Apple has officially launched the new iPhone 13 phones, so some may downgrade from older versions to this one.
IPhone users usually have different Apple Watches, and you might not want to upgrade your old watch.
In this case, you need to connect the old watch to the new phone and you may have some issues when you try to connect the watch to the new phone.
Therefore, you should follow the steps and tips that we are telling you today, as these steps help you to connect the watch more easily.
Steps to pair Apple Watch with new iPhone
At the beginning, before any step, you should make sure to make a backup of your Apple Watch, so as not to lose its contents.
You can do this by going to the Settings app, then General Settings, and choose Manage iPhone Space.
After that, click on the watch app under the list of apps on the phone and you will see a list of all available backup copies of the watch.
You can search for the last backup you made from the watch, and the backups are not listed in chronological order, so you have to search for them manually.
Once you are sure you have a backup of the watch on the phone, disconnect the watch from the old phone.
And then pair it with the new phone directly, so that you can start using it and restore the backup to the phone.
Surveillance app backups are transferred from old iPhone to new iPhone while app backups are transferred via iCloud.
What to do if you can’t find a recent watch backup
The steps vary depending on the situation you find yourself in. If you’ve already unpaired the watch, you won’t be able to get a new backup.
And if you haven’t deleted the watch, you can go to Manage app backups and back up the watch directly through the app.
You can also attach the watch and prepare it for use as a brand new watch, although that is annoying and won’t do you any good.
