How to Force Close an App on Apple Watch when not Responding

As in any other technological product, in the Apple Watch the applications can remain totally hung and not respond. In the iPhon e they can be closed easily in multitasking but in the Apple Watch it can be a more unknown process especially if it is the first contact you have with your Apple smartwatch. In this article we tell you how you can force the closure of applications in watchOS.

So you can force the closure of applications on Apple Watch

It is important to note that closing applications in this way will not save battery in any case. As with the iPhone, background applications do not consume extra battery as such, so we should not close them compulsively as we will not earn anything extra by doing this task that can make us heavy.

But if an application is hung or does not finish loading correctly, especially on the clocks of previous generations, it is advisable to force the closure of these. To perform this process we must follow the following steps:

  1. We position ourselves in the application we want to close because it gives us bugs.
  2. We will press and hold the right side button until the drop-down menu appears to turn off the clock.
  3. At this time we stop pressing the side button, and we will keep the digital crown pressed.
  4. After a few seconds of waiting we will see how there is an animation that shows us how the application disappears down.

Once we have done this process, the application will be completely closed on our watch and we will have to open it again to start from scratch and thus solve the bug that could occur. This problem was seen especially in the Apple Watch Series 2 and Series 1 since the processing is not too powerful in those cases and the required information was not shown.

In the most extreme cases in which the error does not end up being solved with this type of closure, we can uninstall the application completely and reinstall it but we rarely have to do this. Normally when we force the application to close and reload it, the cache is no longer a problem that may be possible causing the load to fail.

Although some users may see this process too obvious, surely there are many users who had no idea because recently they have a smart watch in their possession.
