The Apple Watch, since the latest updates, is capable of unlocking the iPhone with the mask. In addition to this, you may not know the function of unlocking your Mac computer with the Apple Watch itself, as well as being able to unlock applications with the watch.
We are going to teach you how to do the process. All you need is a Mac and an Apple Watch update to the latest compatible version, and in a few seconds, you can forget to put the password on the Mac.
Unlock your Mac with the Apple Watch
If you do not have a Mac with Touch ID, it may be somewhat annoying to enter the password all the time, especially with Apple products close to you. The Apple Watch can unlock the Mac and do the same with some apps, so we are going to show you how to do it.
You need to have your Mac, iPhone and Apple Watch operating and unlocked at the time of doing this tutorial.
It is necessary, first of all, that you have your Mac at hand, that the iPhone is unlocked and that your Apple Watch is active, on the wrist, without any type of lock. If you meet these three requirements, you just have to follow these steps.
- Click on the apple icon on your Mac to open the menu
- Click on ‘System Preferences’
- Now go to ‘Security and Privacy’
- Click on ‘General’
- Turn on ‘Use Apple Watch to unlock apps and Mac’
Ready, from now on, as long as you are wearing your Apple Watch, you will not need to enter the Mac password. Automatically, on the lock screen, the Mac will unlock itself.
