Apple Watch is undoubtedly the smartest gadget out there in the market. There are hardly any limitations or drawbacks of Apple Watch. The only problem that I personally find irritating is that to locate any specific app on the tiny screen. Yes, there is an option to magnify the app layout, but that’s not feasible every time.
Thanks to Apple, they let us arrange the app icons to suit our requirement. You can arrange the most used apps in one corner and least used in another. There are two ways to rearrange app icons on Apple Watch: one is from Apple Watch itself and other is from iPhone. We have covered both the methods below; just have a look at it.
Rearrange App Icons from Apple Watch
Step #1. Press the Digital Crown on your Apple Watch to bring up the home screen.
Step #2. Same like iPhone, touch and hold any app from the app layout on your Apple Watch.
Step #3. Now keep holding the app and drag it to the location where you want to place it.
Step #4. Release your finger once you have reached the desired place.
The above process is identical to re-arranging apps on iPhone, but the only difference is the size of the screen. If you aren’t comfortable doing the same on the small screen, then you can rearrange apps from your paired iPhone as well. Check the guide below for details.
