How to Sync Music from iPhone to Apple Watch

Apple Watch is one of the coolest smartwatches with fun features like Walkie-Talkie and the ability to play music on your watch. However, there’s not much storage on this tiny device so you can only stream music when your paired iPhone is close by. If you want to listen to something without the help of your iPhone, it’s useful to know how to sync music to Apple Watch. It’s a pretty simple process. Let’s have a look.

How to Sync Music to Apple Watch

  1. Put your Apple Watch on its charger and be sure to have your iPhone close at hand
  2. On your iPhone, go to Settings → Bluetooth and toggle it ON
  3. Open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and tap on My Watch tab → Scroll and tap on Music.
