As Apple Watch has been designed to work in sync with iPhone, you have to pair both the iDevices for seamless integration. However, there are times when you would need to unpair your Watch from iPhone. For instance, you are selling your iPhone or trying to fix connectivity issue between Watch and iPhone, you will have to unpair these two devices.
There are two ways you can disconnect your Apple Watch from iPhone. One is via the Apple Watch app from your iPhone, the other is from your Watch itself. Here is how it works!
