IPhone users have lost the ability to unlock their Apple Watch after the latest update. This is reported by the MacRumors edition.
The problem was found in iOS 14.7 and watchOS 7.6 released for iPhone, presented for Apple smartwatches. In some cases, users cannot unlock the watch using a smartphone, which is provided by the system. Previously, to unlock the Apple Watch, the owner of the watch only had to unlock his smartphone.
The journalists noticed that the breakdown is associated only with Apple smartphones that have a physical Home button and a Touch ID fingerprint sensor built into it. The owners of smart watches and phones with a biometric Face ID sensor were not affected.
The company has already paid attention to the problem. Apple representatives promised to fix the problem in the next update. As a temporary measure, users are advised to unlock the watch with a digital code. If the code has been forgotten, experts advise to reset the gadget settings and configure the device again.
With the release of iOS 14.7, Apple smartphones also have a reverse charging function. However, it only works with the iPhone 12 series and when using a branded MagSafe external battery.
