WatchOS 7 was announced at WWDC 2020 last month with a number of new features including sleep tracking, hand washing guides, new workouts and much more. Since we now have access to the beta, the first developer of WatchOS 7, we can dive into what has changed in the system.
The Apple Watch offers the same control center as the iPhone, where you can get quick access to Wi-Fi, Airplane mode, Do Not Disturb and more options. With the help of WatchOS 7, Apple Watch users can hide a few tiles in the control center for the first time.
As the control center of the Apple Watch gets more and more options every year, the ability to hide some toggles can be very helpful for some users. Previously, watchOS 6 allowed you to rearrange only the available buttons.
Editing the options available in WatchOS 7’s Control Center is easy. All you need to do to open the Control Center is swipe your finger from the bottom of the screen (or long-press the bottom end of the clock if you’re running an application). Scroll down and tap “Edit”.
You tap to rearrange the icons and press the red button to hide a certain toggle. However, there are some tiles that users can’t hide: cellular, Wi-Fi, battery and aircraft mode.
In a related note, WatchOS 7 includes a new Control Center option to enable and disable “Announce messages with Siri on AirPods”.
WatchOS 7 is now in developer beta and for the first time any public beta will be available later this month. The update will be available for the Apple Watch Series 3 and later this fall.
