When Apple released watchOS 7, it introduced some great new features. Apple Watch users can use Family Setup, create a Memoji and wash their hands for 20 seconds. But with watchOS 7 came some other changes that are still head scrapers. One of these changes is how you clear your alerts.
You used to be able to delete all your alerts at the same time with a convenient Force Touch gesture. But if you have the latest watchOS version on your Apple Watch, you may be wondering what happened to the gesture and how to clear alerts now.
Remove all Apple Watch alerts at once
When you see the little red dot indicating that you have alerts, you can easily swipe down on the Apple Watch screen to view them. Tap one to open the app, or swipe up to hide the alerts. This part has not changed with watchOS 7.
But what has changed is that to remove all your alerts at once, you need to scroll.
With your alerts in sight, use your finger or Digital Crown to scroll to the actual at the top of your list. Then press, Delete everything.
Now this is not a big, cumbersome task by any means. But it seems like a step backwards for many Apple Watch users. Before, you could simply use Force Touch anywhere on the alert list to remove it. But now you have to scroll to the top, which is not ideal if you have many, many alerts.
Another of the Force Touch features that was changed with watchOS 7 is how to view your calendar events in list view. So be sure to check out our updated tutorial on that as well.
