How To Remove Apple Watch Protective Cover

Share This:

Removing your Apple Watch protective cover is an important part of taking care of your device. Not only does it keep dust and dirt from building up on the watch face, but it also helps protect the display from scratches and other damage. Removing the cover is relatively easy, but there are a few things you should know before you start.

First off, make sure that your watch is powered down before beginning the process. The best way to power down your Apple Watch is to press and hold the side button until “Power Off” appears on the screen. Once this has happened, you can then begin to remove the protective cover.

Using your fingernail—or a credit card—gently lift one corner of the protector and pry it away from the screen. If one corner doesn’t work, try another. You may need to use some force in order to get it off, but be careful not to damage any part of your device in the process.

Once you have successfully removed all four sides of the cover, carefully lift it away from the watch face. Be sure not to touch any internal components or buttons with your fingers—doing so could cause damage or interfere with proper functioning over time.

Once you’ve removed the cover, all plastic wrap should be removed from both your watch and the band as well. It should not be necessary to “cut” anything in order to do this; simply peel back each plastic layer one by one until everything has been removed.

That’s it! You now know how to safely remove your Apple Watch protective cover without causing any damage or interference with its functionality over time. Taking care of your device is important for ensuring that it works correctly and lasts as long as possible, so make sure that you always follow these steps whenever removing or replacing its protective cover!

Removing an Apple Watch Protective Case

Begin by carefully placing your thumb on one side of the case and your index finger on the other side. Gently pry up on each side until the case is released from the watch. You may need to use a thin object such as a credit card to help pry off the case if it is difficult to remove. Once you have removed the protective case, you can slide it off of the watch. Be sure not to pull too hard or you may damage the watch or case.

Removing a Screen Protector from a Smart Watch

To remove a screen protector from a smartwatch, turn your device off and use your fingernail—or a credit card—to gently lift one corner of the protector and pry it away from the screen. If one corner doesn’t come up easily, try another corner until you have successfully pried up the entire protector. Be careful not to scratch or damage the surface of the screen while removing the protector.

Changing the Cover of an Apple Watch

To change the cover on your Apple Watch, you will need to remove the current cover. To do this, press and hold the Digital Crown and side button at the same time until you see the Power Off slider. Swipe the slider to turn off your watch. Now use a spudger or pry tool to carefully insert it between the case and band of your Apple Watch. Gently pry open the case as you slide around its edges until it comes off. Now take your new cover and carefully place it on top of your Apple Watch, making sure that all sides are securely in place. Once you have done this, press and hold both buttons again until you see the Apple logo appear on the screen. Your new cover is now installed!
