Make It Vastly Easier to Find Apps on Your Apple Watch

The Apple Watch’s App screen’s icon cloud looks great, but finding and tapping the tiny icon for a particular app can be challenging. That’s especially true for icons that look similar, like all the orange icons for Apple’s time-related apps! watchOS 4 offers a more straightforward alternative. First, open the App screen by pressing the Digital Crown. Then force-touch the screen and tap List View. Your apps now appear in an easy-to-use alphabetical listing, which you can scroll either by either swiping or turning the Digital Crown. Tap an app in the list to open it. If you tire of List View, force-touch it and tap Grid View.
