With Apple Watch Mirroring in ‌iOS 16‌, Apple utilizes its AirPlay wireless protocol to make Apple Watch more accessible. The addition of the new feature means you can use touch or assistive features like Voice Control, Switch Control, and more on your ‌iPhone‌ to interact with your Apple Watch.

To start using Apple Watch Mirroring, you’ll need an Apple Watch Series 6 or later running watchOS 9, along with a paired ‌iPhone‌ running ‌iOS 16‌. You can check if your ‌iPhone‌ needs updating by going to Settings -> General -> Software Update.

How to Control Apple Watch Mirroring

  1. On your ‌iPhone‌, launch the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and tap Accessibility.
  3. Under “Physical and Motor,” tap Apple Watch Mirroring.
  4. Toggle on the switch next to Apple Watch Mirroring.

After you’ve performed the last step, a graphical representation of your Apple Watch will appear on your ‌iPhone‌’s screen, while a blue outline will appear around the face of your Apple Watch to indicate that mirroring is enabled.

You’ll now be able to control your Apple Watch by tapping and swiping on the watch image that appears on your ‌iPhone‌. You can even tap the Side button and swipe the Digital Crown to mimic the same physical actions that you would perform on your watch. When you’re done using Apple Watch Mirroring, simply tap the X in the top-right corner of the Apple Watch card on your ‌iPhone‌.

If you want to make Apple Watch Mirroring quicker to access, you can add it to Apple’s Accessibility Shortcut menu, which, once set up, can be invoked using a triple click of the Home button.
