    I tried all the fixes that I could find on the web, but just couldn’t get the “Allow your Apple Watch to unlock your Mac” box to appear on my iMac. After wasting a couple of hours on this, I called Apple Support. It took them another 40 minutes or so, but they finally sent me a “.mobileconfig”link I had to install on my iPhone. Even then the iMac wouldn’t show the option, so I was told to put the watch on the charger for 15 minutes or so. Afterwards, it appeared and I activated it.

    I love this feature. Unfortunately, if your Mac is older than a 2012 model, this functionality won’t work. I believe this is because of the Bluetooth version used in those older machines.

    Whoops, I meant to say “older than a 2013 model.” My bad.
