Apple Watch Unlocks Mac: The cheque is in the post
“Unlocking with Apple Watch”: This is the message I see on my iMac screen whenever I approach the computer, Watch on wrist. After a month of intermittent success but many failed unlocks I now realise this is akin to “the cheque is in the post”.
It just isn’t reliable. Sometimes I’m informed that the “wi-fi signal is poor” (which a total lie as far as I can determine) but most times after a brief “unlocking” phase up comes the standard password entry box.
Am I alone in this? Perhaps something to do with the settings on my computer or on my Apple Watch? If not, it is probably something Apple will sort out in the usual fashion, by a quiet upgrade in a security upgrade to Sierra, never admitting to there having been a problem in the first place.
In the meantime, I’m being lied to every day. But I do love my new Apple Watch 2; more on this later.
