My update is stuck on" Verifying"
Good Luck

Druing the update, it asked for you to enter your unlock password on your watch.
Really strange.
Finally I took the watch of the charger put it on my wrist, entered the password , back on charger and then it resumed.
Good Luck

Well, that broke the ability to unlock via my iPhone 8. They say a known issue, fix to come?

Yeah, $5 says the fix will be “Apple is no longer supporting this feature with touch-ID phones. Please upgrade to a face-ID phone.”

Sorry, couldn’t resist.

Yes, my iPhone 8 cannot unlock my watch since the update. I have to use my pass-code to unlock it.

Apple have said it only affects iPhones with Touch ID, however my iPhone 12 running iOS15 beta3 won’t unlock my watch, and it didn’t work on iOS14.7 either. My watch is on WatchOS7.6

That’s definitely frustrating. Happily, it’s working for me!

I just noticed that my iPhone 12 on iOS 14.7 won’t unlock my Series 5 Apple Watch on watchOS 7.6.
I thought it was working fine after I updated.
