Notifications on the Apple Watch help you stay informed without having to pick up your iPhone. And your alerts are easily accessible with a simple swipe down from the top of your Watch face. But like your iPhone, those notifications can pile up. Rather than tap each one to make it go away, you can skim through them and then make them all disappear at once. How do you do that, you ask? This short tutorial shows you how to clear all of your Apple Watch alerts at one time.
Clear your Apple Watch notifications at once
As you probably know, when you have new alerts on your Apple Watch, a small red indicator will appear at the top. You just swipe down to see the notifications. You can then scroll through them and tap one to open it.
After you view your alerts, the red dot will disappear from your screen, but those notifications are still there when you swipe down again.
To make all of your alerts disappear, swipe down to open the list and then use Force Touch. When you tap and hold on the screen, a Clear All button will appear. Tap it and you’re done!
If you change your mind about erasing those alerts when the Clear All button appears, just press the Digital Crown and you’ll go right back to the list.
