How to disable iPhone 13 unlock with Apple Watch
To disable the feature that lets you unlock the iPhone 13 screen using the Apple Watch, follow the path below:
- Open the Settings app;
- Navigate to Face ID and password;
- If the Unlock with Apple Watch option is enabled, simply disable it.
The iPhone 13 that I am currently using already came with this option disabled by default.
In the support page note, Apple unfortunately did not specify when the software update with this fix will be released. However, it’s worth noting that Apple already sent out the first beta version of iOS 15.1 last week for bug fixes and adding improvements to the system. Soon, it may be that we are not far from the new system update for the iPhone 13.
Last Sunday, I took a train ride and I really missed this feature, as always having to type the unlock code to activate the iPhone 13 screen is a dull task. Which made me really miss the biometric sensor of my Pixel 5, positioned on the back of the phone. I hope Apple fix this problem as soon as possible, because it is really useful in everyday life.
