Apple Watch Unlock Bug

iPhones have a feature that lets them be unlocked with an Apple Watch. This is an essential feature for people wearing face masks. But iPhone 13 owners saw an error message that said:

Unable to Communicate With Apple Watch. Make sure your Apple Watch is unlocked and on your wrist, and your iPhone is unlocked.

iOS 15.0.1 Update Notes

  • 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

iPadOS 15.0.1 also includes the fixes for meditations and storage.
