The Apple Watch isn’t only for sending you notifications from your iPhone and make you attend calls. It is also a good wearable for those who like to workout, running, cycling and swimming. Since series 2, Apple has made the watches water resistance up to 50 meters. However being water resistance doesn’t mean that water will not get inside the tiny holes or parts of Watch, like the speaker. But worry not because Apple has already created a great feature called Water lock that helps you get rid of any moisture.
How do you Turn on Water Lock on the Apple Watch?
Time to swim, dive or take a shower, activate Water Lock to prevent accidental touches and eject water from your Apple Watch after deactivating the feature. To activate it, follow the below mentioned procedure.
Step 1 : Open the control center by tapping and holding the bottom of the display. Expand it by swiping up.
Step 2 : Look for the Water Lock button and tap on it to activate it. (Its a water drop icon you can find above Airplane Mode).
Also you can turn the Water Lock on by activating workout mode like surfing or swimming.
