The notifications that you receive on your Apple Watch allow you to check on new messages or information that has appeared on your apps. If you use your Apple watch in conjunction with your iPhone, then this can make it much easier to stay updated on what is occurring on your phone.
But if you use a lot of apps with regularity, and you get a lot of notifications, then it can be a little overwhelming. You might already know how to delete a single Apple Watch notification, but what if you have a long list of notifications on your iPhone that would take a while to delete individually? Fortunately there is also a way to clear all of your Apple Watch notifications at once, although it is a method that might not be very familiar to iPhone users that don’t often take advantage of the 3D Touch capabilities on their devices, or who don’t have iPhone models with 3D Touch. Our guide below will show you how to use this feature to delete those notifications.
How to Delete All of Your Apple Watch Notifications
The steps below were performed on an Apple Watch 2, using the 3.1.1 version of Watch OS. Note that these steps are completed directly on the Watch itself, so you won’t need to use the app on your iPhone.
Step 1: Swipe down from the top of the Apple Watch screen to open the notifications menu.
Step 2: Press down on one of the notifications and hold. You need to press somewhat hard.
Step 3: Tap the Clear All button to delete all of your Apple Watch notifications.
