The Apple Watch SE is one of the most popular smartwatches on the market today, offering a wide range of features and functions. Its sleek design makes it stylish and comfortable to wear all day long. But what about closing apps on your Apple Watch SE?

Closing or force quitting apps on your Apple Watch SE is very easy and can be done in a few simple steps. First, press and release the side button once – this will bring up the list of currently running apps on your watch. You can then scroll through these active apps with either your finger or Digital Crown. To close an app, swipe from right to left and select the large red X to close it.

Alternatively, you can force quit an app by pressing and holding down the side button until you’re presented with a shutdown screen. From here, press and hold down the Digital Crown until the app quits out completely.

You can also view recently used apps by double-pressing the Home button. Swipe left or right to find the app you want to use, then select it to open up again. If you want to close all open apps at once, just swipe up on all open apps to close them all out simultaneously.

By following these simple steps, you should have no trouble closing or force-quitting apps on your Apple Watch SE whenever needed!

Inability to Close Apps on Apple Watch

The reason you can’t close apps on your Apple Watch is that the watchOS operating system doesn’t allow it. The Apple Watch uses a limited form of multitasking, which means that some apps remain running in the background, even after you’ve moved on to something else. To force quit an app, press and hold the side button for the shutdown screen and press and hold the Digital Crown to close it.

Viewing Running Apps on an Apple Watch

To see what apps are running on your Apple Watch, open the Settings app and tap Dock. Here, you’ll see a list of recently used apps, with the most recently used app appearing at the top. You can also open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and tap My Watch, then tap Dock to view the list of recently used apps. To close an app, press and hold its icon until it jiggles and a small X appears in its corner. Tap the X to close the app.

Closing Apps on Apple Watch Without Side Button

To close apps on your Apple Watch without the side button, you can press and hold the Digital Crown until the app closes and the screen reverts to the Watch face. This will force quit any active apps and put your Apple Watch in its default state.
