Just a few minutes ago they tried to deliver my new iPhone 6s. I know that thanks to my doorbell. Too bad I wasn’t there. In anticipation of having it soon, I was reading a review of the new iPhone 6s and I found it very interesting about how the writer got his Apple Watch working with his new iPhone and it was not as easy or obvious, as it could be. Also not sure if it was or is the only way. But it worked.
Here is the info from the article about how to move to a new iPhone when you have an Apple Watch paired with your old iPhone.
“Restore my new iPhone from my old iPhone’s latest backup, then open the Apple Watch app. The companion app wanted to set up an Apple Watch from scratch, so I had to open the Settings app on Apple Watch and choose Erase All Content and Settings under General and Reset. After pairing iPhone and Apple Watch again, the app told me I had a backup from today, allowing me to easily restore. Not too painful, but this could be smoother next year” - from this article.
I will be home on Sunday, and hopefully Monday the delivery guys will be back with my new phone and I can give this a try myself.
