Apple’s upcoming watchOS 10 update for its Apple Watch will feature a new layout for the wearable’s Home Screen, claims a tweet from the anonymous Twitter account @analyst941.
@analyst941 claims the new layout would be much easier to navigate than the two current options, and have more iOS-like features, including folders for apps. The anonymous tweeter isn’t sure if the redesigned layout will be a third option or will replace the grid display as the default option.
Happy 9:41 AM
I saved the best for last, watchOS will have a redesigned homescreen layout/grid.

Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman, in his weekly newsletter on Sunday, said watchOS 10, which will debut at June’s WWDC 2023 event, will be the biggest Apple Watch software update since the first version of the operating system was released in 2015. watchOS 10 will be unveiled alongside iOS 17, iPadOS 17, macOS 14, and tvOS 17 on June 5th.
As for the veracity of this rumor, @analyst941 has previously leaked accurate information about the Dynamic Island feature on the iPhone 14 Pro ahead of the handset’s launch last year. Unfortunately, the leaker doesn’t have a long-term track record when it comes to predictions like this, so we’ll have to wait and see until Apple unveils watchOS 10 in June.
