How to disable notifications on Apple Watch

Apple Watch notifications

Apple Watch is designed to keep information flowing from your iPhone to your wrist. The convenience of not looking at your phone is sometimes replaced by a barrage of notifications on the watch. Apps are set by default to "mirror iPhone alerts", which means any notifications appearing on the iPhone are delivered to Apple Watch. If you find that too many alerts are popping up, watchOS notifications can be customized or disabled.

How to delete apps from Apple Watch

Many iPhone apps have companion Apple Watch apps. Some of these apps bring additional functions to the Apple Watch, while others don't add much. Some Apple Watch users prefer to receive notifications from apps on the watch but launch apps solely on the iPhone. In any case, if you find there are too many apps installed on your Apple Watch they can be removed.

The Oregon Trail video game has a new incarnation on Apple Watch. This stand-alone step tracker is a fun way to see just how far your real-world steps would get you on the trail. While you can't tap the space bar to shoot at fauna, the Apple Watch-only title traces your progress each day by linking with Apple Health. Each section of the trail appears on the Apple Watch along with statistics and trivia.
