Delete Apps On Apple Watch

If you wish to uninstall an app from your Apple Watch, you may do so with a few clicks. Since its release, Apple’s Watch has soared in popularity. Apple Watch comes with various preinstalled apps by default. However, you must install some apps on Apple Watch to improve its functioning. You may, for example, add YouTube music to your Apple Watch to play your favorite tunes right from your wrist. Some customers may have set their Apple Watch to auto-install the apps installed on the linked iPhone. However, because Apple Watch has less storage than iPhone, you must delete a few apps to free up space on Apple Watch.

Please remember that the deletion guide below applies to all models, including the Apple Watch Series 7, Series 6, Special Edition, Series 5, Series 4, and Series 3.
