Apple's watchOS 7.4 Lands With iPhone Unlocking Feature

April 26, 2021

Apple Watch users can now download watchOS 7.4

The update can be downloaded now through the companion Watch app on your iPhone by heading to General > Software Update in the My Watch portion of the app or on an Apple Watch.

Your watch needs to have more than 50 percent power and connected to a charger. Like most Apple Watch updates, it could take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to complete, so be patient.

A notable addition is the ability to unlock an iPhone with the Apple Watch nearby.
