Apple Watch can only be paired with an iPhone at this time. However, with a future update, the installation of Apple smart watches can be done with a device other than the iPhone.
According to a new rumor, Apple is working on a software update that will allow users to pair their Apple Watch with multiple Apple devices including iPhone, iPad and Mac.
Currently, the Apple Watch can only be paired with one iPhone, and it is possible to pair several Apple Watches with the same iPhone. However, Apple does not offer the ability to pair or sync the watch with other devices in the ecosystem.
Once the Apple Watch is paired with the iPhone, it can be used with the iPad signed in with the same Apple ID – to follow the Apple Fitness+ workout routines. Apple Watch can be used to unlock the computer, view passwords, and Apple Pay on Mac. But that’s it. The new update may change this limitation.
It is not yet clear whether this change will be with iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14, watchOS 10 or will it be delayed to next year. Before I forget, this rumor comes from the person who leaked the information that the iPhone 14 Pro will come with a dynamic island.
