Just like the lowercase “i” in a circle found across iOS and iPadOS, the “i” icon on your Apple Watch represents and provides “information.” In this article, we will discuss the “i” icons on the Apple Watch and how they relate to the watch’s connection to an iPhone.
What is the ‘i’ Icon on an Apple Watch?
If you’re trying to manually link your Apple Watch with an iPhone, you can tap the “i” icon to learn more. A new Apple Watch must be synced with an iPhone before it can be used.
Automatic pairing is available, or you may start the pairing process manually by clicking the “i” icon. Using an Apple Watch involves a number of “i” icons; the first initiates the manual pairing procedure, while others provide context and generate the sync code.
Where is the ‘i’ Icon on an Apple Watch?
On the first setup screen of your Apple Watch, you’ll see the “i” icon for the first time. Wearing an unpaired Apple Watch will get you to your destination. The “i” icon can be found in the corner of the screen.
In the event that you need to re-pair your Apple Watch with an iPhone, you can do so by manually initiating the pairing procedure through the watch’s “i” icons. When an Apple Watch is in pairing mode, which is activated by bringing it near an iPhone or scanning it with the latter, the information icon (i) appears.
On the pairing screen, it appears as a small circle containing a small letter “i” in the bottom right corner. The “i” icon may appear in the Watch app on your iPhone in addition to appearing on the Apple Watch display.
The “i” icon appears on the right side of the chosen Watch model after you’ve picked your Apple Watch from within the Watch app. You can disconnect your watch from your iPhone or use functions like “Find My Apple Watch” from here.
How to Unpair an Apple Watch Using the ‘i’ Icon
You may quickly disconnect your Apple Watch from your iPhone by tapping the “i” icon, which is actually located in the Watch app on your iPhone and not on the Apple Watch itself.
Step 1: Initiate the Watch app on your iPhone.
Step 2: In the My Watch section, select All Watches from the menu.
Step 3: A list of devices (or, more often than not, only one) will appear. To detach from a specific watch, tap it.
Step 4: Select a watch, and then tap the “i” icon that appears on its right.
Step 5: Select Unpair Apple Watch, and last, verify your selection.
How to Re-Pair an Apple Watch Using the ‘i’ Icon
The “i” symbol on your Apple Watch is where you’ll begin the pairing procedure if you need to do it manually.
Step 1: Wear your Apple Watch solo, without a paired iPhone.
Step 2: Select your language by tapping the “i” button in the upper right.
Step 3: Select Pairing to begin on the subsequent screen.
Step 4: If you’d rather manually pair your Apple Watch, hit the “i” icon in the upper right corner after the animation plays.
Step 5: Launch the Watch app on your iPhone, and then select Start Pairing.
Step 6: Select Pair Manually and choose the watch’s name from the list on the Position Apple Watch in the Frame page if the animation on the watch isn’t working or if you’d rather do it manually.
When the automatic pairing process isn’t successful, you can use the “i” icon to manually link your Apple Watch with your iPhone. If you haven’t already connected your Watch with an iPhone, you’ll see this icon here; pressing it will disclose a 6-digit code that will allow you to manually pair your iPhone and Watch.
There’s no need to panic if you can’t see the information icon in the Watch’s upper right corner. If you’re still using your Apple Watch in conjunction with your iPhone and you don’t see the “i” icon, don’t worry.
