How to rearrange Control Center toggles on Apple Watch

Find out how to rearrange Control Center toggles on your Apple Watch so you can add more options or remove the ones you don’t use.

Editing Control Center on Apple Watch

Just like Control Center on your iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Apple Vision Pro, you can customize the watchOS Control Center to make it your own.

You can add or remove items from there or reorder the toggles to your liking.

Edit your Apple Watch Control Center

1) Open the Control Center on your Apple Watch.

  • On watchOS 10 or later, press the side button.
  • On watchOS 9 or earlier, swipe up from the watch face. If you’re inside an app, touch & hold the bottom of the screen, and then swipe up.

2) Scroll down to the bottom of the Control Center and tap the Edit button.

  • Remove an added control: Tap the red minus button.
Remove control from Apple Watch Control Center
  • Add an available control: Tap the green plus button.
Add control to Apple Watch Control Center
  • Reorder the added controls: Touch and hold an option and drag it horizontally or vertically to its new spot and drop it there.

4) After you finish editing, tap the Done button from the bottom.

Keep in mind that you cannot edit the Apple Watch Control Center through the companion Watch app on your iPhone.

How is this useful?

Different people have different needs, so making the Apple Watch Control Center your own is contingent upon your daily usage patterns.

If you happen to own an LTE-enabled watch but don’t use LTE connectivity much, you may want to drag that Cellular toggle down the list to make room for a more frequently used item.

Frequent moviegoers, on the other hand, might want to move the Theater Mode toggle higher than the Expel Water button for quick access.

Conversely, those who rarely use Theater Mode may move other frequently-used toggles, like Do Not Disturb or Battery, to the very top of the Control Center overlay.
