Apple Watch wearers have something to be excited about– a beloved feature that was removed in 2016 is set to make a triumphant return in watchOS 10.2. The upcoming version of Apple’s smartwatch operating system will finally incorporate “Swipe to Switch Watch Face,” which allows users to easily change the watch face on their device by swiping the screen. The decision to bring back this functionality stems from feedback received from Apple Watch users, whose displeasure with the feature’s removal prompted Apple to take action.

The return of “Swipe to Switch Watch Face” will be forthcoming in watchOS 10.2, as part of the upcoming update’s beta 3. This gives all beta testers the chance to experience the feature ahead of the official release, a welcome development for many Apple Watch enthusiasts. Once the watchOS 10.2 beta 3 is installed, or when the final version is available for download, users can head to the Settings > Clock menu to set their preferred method for changing their watch face. They can also utilize the Watch app on their iPhone to access the Face Gallery tab and create a variety of watch faces for different occasions. This makes it possible to quickly and easily choose the perfect watch face to suit any event or activity without the need for multiple physical watches.

The lack of this feature since watchOS 10 was undoubtedly a disappointment to many users as manually changing the watch face was an integral part of the Apple Watch experience. Now, as Apple prepares to bring back this feature in watchOS 10.2, users are eagerly awaiting the chance to enjoy the convenience and flexibility it offers. With the ability to effortlessly switch between different watch faces to suit any occasion, Apple Watch owners have plenty to look forward to.
