⌚️ Swipe between Watch faces like iPhone screens
Being able to create multiple Watch faces for different uses or situations is one of my favorite features. You can do it on the Watch or in the iPhone app, and I encourage you to experiment.
If you need inspiration, I wrote about the Watch faces I use
, such as day-to-day, music, exercising, and ‘screw the rest of the world I’m relaxing the rest of the day.’
A great way to make these faces even more useful, and remove friction from switching between them, is to simply swipe across your Watch face. They’re stored horizontally next to each other, much like homescreen pages on your iPad or iPhone. Start a full swipe from the left or right edge of your current face, and you’ll instantly switch to the next adjacent one.
If you need to rearrange them, use the iPhone app. Just tap Edit to the right of My Faces at the top.
📺 Apple TV: Press Menu to start the screensaver
Sometimes I turn on our Apple TV just to watch those great slow-mo landscape screensavers our our shared family photo album. Sometimes it takes longer than I’d like to start, so I’m glad I discovered you can manually start the screensaver whenever you want.
As long as you’re on the homescreen, just press Menu on the Siri Remote (this might work on third-party remotes too; try whichever button you mapped to ‘Menu’).
Bonus Tip: If you do not currently have the left-most app in your Dock selected, the first Menu press will quickly take you there. Press it again for the screensaver.
