The Apple Watch Home App Gets an Overhaul in watchOS 10

  • The Apple Watch Home app has been overhauled with watchOS 10, bringing the HomeKit experience in-line with iPhone
  • Learn what the new Home app looks like and how it works
  • Discover features such as the Intercom button, quick access categories, and manual control

watchOS 10 brings a big overhaul for the Apple Watch experience with a new widgets UI, mental health features like mood tracking, new watch faces, and redesigns coming with native apps like Weather, Stocks, Maps, Messages, World Clock, Heart Rate, and Home. After getting a major overhaul of the Home app with iOS 16 last year for iPhone, this time it’s Apple Watch’s turn for a HomeKit upgrade with watchOS 10.

When launching the new Home app in watchOS 10, users will see their camera feeds at the top, four quick buttons for climate, lights, security, and speakers, and their favorite HomeKit devices below that. Swipe to the very top to see the Intercom button and tap the back arrow to see categories and all your rooms. Tap a HomeKit device in the new app to toggle it on/off (lock/unlock, open/close, etc.) or tap the … icon to get precise control for things like thermostats and lights.

Overall, the new Home app in watchOS 10 makes it much easier to quickly get a glimpse at what’s going on at your home, access devices, and control them. To try it out, watchOS 10 is available now in beta.
