How to Disable Auto Playing Audio Apps on Apple Watch

Apple Watch has a well-thought-out feature “auto-launch audio apps” that automatically launches music app or any other audio apps whenever you wake the screen while playing audio or listening to your favorite tracks on your Apple Watch or iPhone.

It offers a seamless experience; allowing you to comfortably fine-tune music controls especially when you are enjoying your favorite tracks on your iPhone or AirPods. But if you find this auto-launching of music app annoying for any personal reason, you can easily disable auto-playing audio apps on your Apple Watch. Let’s take a look!

Your turn

Personally, I like this auto-launching of now playing screen on the Watch. Whenever I’m tuned onto AirPods, I spin Digital Crown to adjust volume comfortably. This feature becomes even more helpful when the iPhone is in my pocket, and I’m not using the earphones. But again, what may be good for one may not necessarily be cool for everyone.
