How to automatically add new apps to Apple Watch

Apple Watch Series 4

It is more than likely that some of you, more than one I would say, have suffered with the first generation of the Apple Watch, that first generation that forced us to stop using Apple Watch applications from third parties due to the long loading time they needed, a loading time that was sometimes so high that it made us give up the attempt.

But not just us, but also the developers themselves, some of which began to retire their versions of the Apple Watch. Fortunately, as the years have passed, the speed of the Apple Watch processor has increased considerably and currently having third-party applications on the Apple Watch is the most common.

Install apps on Apple Watch

The applications for the Apple Watch are included within the application that we install for iOS, it is included in the same package. Depending on the use you make of certain or all applications, it is likely that you are interested have all the applications of your iPhone, and that have a version for Apple Watch, on your wrist, so as not to be forced to take the iPhone for a simple consultation.

In these cases, the best we can do is make sure that all applications, current and that we install in the future are also installed on the Apple Watch, for this we must follow these steps:

  • First of all, we must open the Watch app on our iPhone.
  • Next, click on General and we activate the box Automatic installation.

As the detail of this function indicates, activating this option, if we have applications on the iPhone that also have a version for the Apple Watch, these applications will be installed automatically and will appear on the Apple Watch home screen.
