The latest iOS 15.0.1 and iPadOS 15.0.1 updates fixes the Unlock with Apple Watch feature on iPhone 13. Towards the end of last month, Cupertino had rolled out a support page for the issue, where it said that it would be rolling out a fix for it soon. The bug had led to some users seeing an error message reading, “Unable to Communicate with Apple Watch,” when they tried to unlock their iPhone while wearing a face mask. Moreover, the issue also led to some users not being able to set up the feature at all. When it published this support page, Apple advised users to disable the feature until it rolled out the fix, and the page has now been updated with the advisory that users shall update their device to iOS 15.0.1 to use the feature without any issue.

While it is the biggest fix, the Unlock with Apple Watch feature fix is not the only solution that iOS 15.0.1 is carrying. Cupertino has said that there had been an issue in the Settings app that showed an incorrect alert about the iPhone’s storage being full, and this issue has also been fixed with the new update.

The iOS 15.0.1 and iPadOS 15.0.1 updates also fix the issue regarding audio meditations unexpectedly starting a workout on Apple Watch for some users of Fitness+.

The update has been launched for all devices that are compatible with the iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 updates – iPhone 6s and later models, all models of iPad Pro, iPad Air 2 and later models, iPad 5th gen and later models, iPad mini 4 and later models as well as iPod touch 7th gen. The update can be found in Settings > General > Software Update.
