The previous week was completely joyful for Apple lovers . The launch of iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus , iOS 10 with better User Interface , new Apple Watch and watchOS3 . Also Apple released macOS Sierra (version 10.12) which is update to OS X (version 10.11) El Capitan. There were many new features added such as Siri and a better , smarter Photos App. As I said there were many new features added so here is tutorial on how to Auto Unlock your Macbook running macOS Sierra .
If you have got an Apple Watch you can now easily use it to unlock your Mac instead of writing the password . This awesome feature can be easily activated simply by wearing an Apple Watch within the range of Mac which runs macOS Sierra. To have this feature you need to make sure that your Apple Watch is updated to watchOS 3 . You can do this simply by opening the Apple Watch app on your iOS device and navigating to the Software Update menu under the “My Watch” section.
Once you have completed this step , then you will need to ensure that two-factor authentication is turned on for your Apple ID. You can turn on two-factor authentication by going to System Preferences > iCloud > Account Details > Security tab > Two-Factor Authentication.
Once you have upgraded to watchOS 3 and made sure that two-factor authentication is turned on, then you will need to “Allow your Apple Watch to unlock your Mac.” This can be done by navigating through :
System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General tab > checkmark Allow your Apple Watch to unlock your Mac. Then you will need to type in your Mac password to activate it and ensure that you have a Passcode set on your Apple Watch for making it work. In Addition you may have to finish setting up two-factor authentication by signing in with your Apple ID on your iPhone in Settings.
And here is what it will look like when you Auto Unlock your computer.
