Tap “Turn Passcode On.”
Enter a six-digit passcode, then tap Continue. Re-enter the passcode to confirm it, then tap Done.

If you’ve got an iPhone 6s or later, and you don’t want to use Touch ID or Face ID to unlock your device, you can set up a passcode. Once you’ve got a passcode set up, you can use apple watch to open your iPhone.
Scroll down and tap “Passcode.” If you’ve already set up a passcode, enter it. If you haven’t, tap “Turn Passcode On” and enter a passcode.
Once you have a passcode set up, scroll down and tap “Unlock with iPhone.”
When prompted, hold apple watch close to your iPhone. You should see “Unlocked with Apple Watch” on your iPhone’s lock screen.
Tap “Turn Passcode On.”
After you’ve set up your Apple Watch and paired it with your iPhone, you can use your Apple Watch to unlock your iPhone. Just tap “Turn Passcode On” under the “Passcode” heading in the Apple Watch app on your iPhone. Once you’ve done that, you’ll be able to unlock your iPhone by double-tapping the home button and holding your Apple Watch up to the display.
Enter a four-digit passcode.
Open your Apple Watch and enter your four-digit passcode. When you see the Watch home screen, press and hold the side button to open the Phone app. If you don’t see the Phone app, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open Control Center, then tap .
If you have an iPhone 6 or later, you can use apple pay to unlock your iPhone. With Apple Pay, you can double-click the side button and hold your Apple Watch up to the contactless reader.
On your iPhone, tap Continue, then choose “This is My [device].” Enter your iCloud password on your iPhone if prompted. On your Apple Watch, wait for a six-digit code to appear. Enter this code on your iPhone. If you don’t see a six-digit code, but are instead asked for a passcode, you probably accidentally set up two-factor authentication instead of two-step verification. You can change this in apple id settings on your iPhone.
Re-enter your passcode to confirm.
If you’ve set up Touch ID or a passcode on your iPhone, you’ll need to enter it to confirm that you want to open your iPhone with your Apple Watch.
If you have an iPhone 6s or later, you can use your Apple Watch to unlock your iPhone and to sign in to apps. Just press the side button on your Watch, then hold your Watch up to the camera on your iPhone. When you see a message that says “Unlock with Watch,” swipe up from the bottom of the screen.
Enter your passcode.
Assuming that you’ve set up your Apple Watch and paired it with your iPhone, you can now use your watch to unlock your phone. Simply enter your passcode when prompted and your phone will unlock.
