Newbie mirror iPhone question

Views: 399 Replies: 5
My wife and I just got Apple Watches. We both have our notifications set to "mirror iphone". Since I wear mine at work, I need to silence the sound during meetings. On the iPhone, I just flip the switch on the side to silence the notifications but that does not seem to have an impact on the watch as it still "dings". Right now, I have had to change all my settings to "no sound" on the AW. Is this the only way or do I have some setting incorrect? I have an iPhone 6 with iOS 9.2.1 installed.

Hi

Silencing the ringer on your iPhone does not also place your watch into Silent Mode. This must be done (and turned back off) separately on each device.

To do the same on your watch: when viewing the time, swipe up on the screen> swipe left / right to the Settings Glance> tap on the button with a crossed out bell symbol (tap again to turn Silent Mode off again).

Use Do Not Disturb - you can get to it by swiping up on any screen on your Phone - it is reflected on your watch as long as it is paired

You may wish to configure your watch and iPhone to mirror Do Not Disturb mode.

On your iPhone, in the Watch app, go to: My Watch> General> Do Not Disturb - turn on Mirror iPhone.

Turning Do Not Disturb on or off on either device will then also change the setting on the other.

Do Not Disturb can be accessed conveniently:
  • On your watch:In the Settings Glance, tap on the crescent moon button, which toggles the mode on / off.
  • To open the Settings Glance: when viewing the time on your watch, swipe up on the screen and then left / right to switch between Glances.
[*]On your iPhone:
    Open Control Centre and tap on the same button, which toggles the setting in the same way.
  • To open Control Centre, when viewing the Home screen, swipe up from the bottom edge of the screen.
  • Depending on your settings (Settings> Control Centre), this action may also be available from the Lock Screen and/or within apps.

To clarify: neither of these is necessarily correct.

Each behaviour depends on your settings, as described in my previous replies.
