watchOS 10 rumored to feature redesigned Home Screen layout with new grid and folders options
watchOS 10, Apple’s next major software update for the Apple Watch is expected to bring major changes to the wearable, with reports claiming the update could be the biggest ever in the history of Apple Watch.
Ahead of WWDC23 in June, where Apple will unveil watchOS 10 before its public debut in fall, a leaker has claimed that the update will bring a redesigned Home Screen layout, which will offer users the option to sort apps in a grid and folder layout, marking the first time Apple has changed the Home Screen layout on Apple Watch.
The insight comes from @analyst941 on Twitter, who says the update will make the Apple Watch Home Screen “act more familiar to iOS,” saying it will be much easier to use compared to the current layout, which shows a user all of their apps in a cluster, which often makes apps difficult to find.
The leaker’s insight comes after Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman said earlier in the week that watchOS 10 will be Apple’s biggest ever Apple Watch software update, expected to bring an “updated interface” with “major” improvements.
In recent years, watchOS updates have become decreasingly major, with the yearly increments seeing small improvements compared to the iOS updates launched alongside them.
