  1. Unpair the Apple Watch from the old phone: Unpairing ensures that the Apple Watch is no longer connected to the previous phone. On the old phone, open the Apple Watch app and go to the "My Watch" tab. Tap on your watch, then select "i" icon next to the watch name, and choose "Unpair Apple Watch."

  2. Pair the Apple Watch with the new phone:

  • Turn on your new phone and make sure it's updated to the latest version of iOS.
  • Open the Apple Watch app on the new phone and follow the on-screen instructions to pair the watch with the new phone.
  • You may need to hold your Apple Watch up to the camera to pair it using the new phone's camera.
  1. Restore from backup (optional): During the pairing process, you will have the option to restore your Apple Watch from a backup of your old watch. This will transfer your settings, data, and apps to the new phone.

  2. Set up Apple Pay and other services: After pairing, you may need to re-enable services like Apple Pay, fitness tracking, and notifications on the newly paired Apple Watch.

Following these steps will ensure a smooth transition of your Apple Watch from the old phone to the new phone.
