Apple releases new update to fix Apple Watch unlock bug

San Francisco: After the release of the iPhone 13 and iOS 15, Apple is rolling out a bug fix update with some notable improvements.

iOS 15.0.1 and iPadOS 15.0.1 are rolling out now with a fix for ‘Unlock with Apple Watch’ and more, reports 9To5Mac.

Here’s what Apple says is fixed in the latest release of iOS 15.0.1 — unlock iPhone with Apple Watch may not work on iPhone 13 models, settings app may incorrectly display an alert that storage is full, audio meditations could unexpectedly start a workout on Apple Watch for some Fitness+ subscribers.

The most notable fix here is for the Unlock with Apple Watch bug, the report said.

As the website reported last week, Apple acknowledged this issue in a support document and promised that a fix would come soon.

Apple has identified an issue where Unlock with Apple Watch may not work with iPhone 13 devices, the tech giant said.

You might see “Unable to Communicate with Apple Watch” if you try to unlock your iPhone while wearing a face mask, or you might not be able to set up Unlock with Apple Watch, it added.

There have been other bugs reported in iOS 15, including issues with touch screen responsiveness and more, as per the report.

At this point, it’s unclear whether today’s release of iOS 15.0.1 resolves this issue. It’s also unclear if today’s update fixes a bug related to the iPhone 13 Pro’s ProMotion display and third-party apps, it added.

Users can update their iPhone or iPad to iOS 15.0.1 and iPadOS 15.0.1 by heading to the Settings app, choosing General, then choosing Software Update.
