Delete apps on the Apple Watch – this is how you do it (even without an iPhone)

The Apple Watch has limited storage, so you can’t avoid freeing up some space sometimes. You do this by deleting apps on your Apple Watch. We tell you the fastest way to do that, even without an iPhone!

Delete apps on Apple Watch

Like your iPhone, the Apple Watch only has a limited amount of storage. With a recent Apple Watch, such as the Apple Watch Series 6 and Apple Watch Series 7, you get 32 ​​GB of storage. That’s quite a lot, but even then apps quickly take up a lot of space.

That is why it is important to clean up every now and then. In that case, follow the steps below to uninstall apps on your Apple Watch.

Delete apps on Apple Watch

  1. Press the digital crown (Digital Crown), which is the round button on the side of your Apple Watch;

  2. In the app overview, press and hold your finger on any app;

  3. Wait for a new window to appear, scroll down and choose ‘Edit apps’;

  4. The apps start to vibrate, tap the cross next to the app you want to remove and choose ‘Delete app’.

If you do not recognize an app icon, it is easier to delete the apps in the list view. This is how you do that.

  • Hold your finger on an app for a moment and wait for the menu to appear;
  • Choose the option ‘List view’ in the menu;
  • Scroll through the list of apps until you find the app you want to remove;
  • Swipe left on the name of the app and tap the trash can.

It is also not possible to remove every app. Can’t see a cross or no trash can? Then the app cannot be thrown away.
