How to activate and what is "Class mode" on Apple Watch

Enable Class mode

One of the novelties of watchOS 7 is the "Class mode". This option, which is similar to the theater or cinema mode of the Apple Watch, offers the option to block applications and complications in addition to activating do not disturb mode.

In this mode, the watch receives notifications and emergency calls but the rest of the functions are blocked until we leave this "Class mode" of the watch. We can say that this mode is different from the silence mode and the rest of the modes offered by the watch. for different situations.

How to activate and what is "Class mode" on Apple Watch

Activating this mode is simple but first of all we have to add it to the clock since it is deactivated in most cases. So the first thing we have to do is activate the icon in the control center and for this we have to slide your finger on the screen of our clock from bottom to top and then click on Edit. At this point we have to look for the icon of the boy with his hand raised and click on the plus.

One of the functions of this mode is be attentive in a limited time or class of a minor, for example, so it's good to know if they have actually activated this feature and the start and end times. All of this is recorded in the Watch app on the iPhone so you can know if your child activated or deactivated this mode while in class. To know when the Class mode has been exited, we open the Watch app, press All Watches, then the affected Apple Watch, and then Class mode.

On the other hand, if you want to use it to be more focused on a task but you don't want to do without seeing the time, you can use it as an alternative to Do Not Disturb or Cinema mode. To exit Class Mode, we turn the Digital Crown and click on the Exit option to confirm. To use this Class mode we must have an Apple Watch Series 4 or a later model with mobile data and have watchOS 7 or later.
