How to clear a Notification or clear all Notifications on your Apple Watch

Notifications is one of the killer features of the Apple Watch. The Apple Watch is like having the Notification Center on your wrist, so it reduces the need to remove your iPhone from the pocket or bag.

Thanks to the seamless integration between the iPhone and Apple Watch, a notification that is dismissed on the Apple Watch disappears from the iPhone and vice versa. You can also dismiss all the notifications on the Apple Watch in one go, a feature that is not available on the iPhone. So if you ever wanted to clear all notifications from the Notification Center on your iPhone, then you can do it using your Apple Watch.

How to clear a Notification on your Apple Watch

  • Swipe down on the watch face to access the Notification Center.
  • Scroll down to the notification you want to clear.
  • Swipe from right to left on the notification.
  • This will display the X or Clear button. Tap on it to clear the notification. This will also clear the notification on your iPhone.

I really hope Apple brings the Force Touch technology to the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. The ability to clear all notifications is just one of the reasons to bring it to the iPhone.
