It appears Apple has removed the ability to disable 2 factor authentication. Interesting. (I’m trying to turn it off to troubleshoot the inability to add Apple Pay to my Series 4 Watch)

@40Tech mine arrives today so I’m interested. Did you do a support chat yet?

@ronguest Not yet. Running through all the possible things they'll tell me to do first. Signing out of iCloud now (for the 2nd time). If that doesn't work, next I'll do a clean install of my iPhone. I've already done an unpairing and clean install of the Watch several times.

@ronguest Seems like a pretty rare problem, though, so you'll probably be fine. Enjoy the Watch. It's really nice.

@ronguest It took a total wipe, with a reinstall of iOS 12 using a clean image downloaded from Apple’s servers, but Apple Pay now works on my Watch. I’ll think I’ll be setting up my phone until 2020 now, since I decided to start fresh and didn’t install from backup.

@ronguest How is yours going?

@40Tech Apple Pay worked fine both times I set mine up. App installs were very weird and took hours to download anything but as of now they’re all there (including a bunch I didn’t want). And both times I reset it, it came up left handed (a win for all the lefties!). We’re sleeping together tonight 😴. Glad yours is now working!

@ronguest Yea, this one was a bit odd with apps. I noticed that sometimes an app wouldn’t show up in complications in the Watch app on the phone, but would show up if picked directly from the Watch.
