How to Stop New Apps From Automatically Installing on Your Apple Watch

When you bought your Apple Watch, you probably loved it when a new app automatically showed up on your new wearable device each time you installed an Apple Watch-compatible app on your iPhone. But now, after a year or so, you know that just because an app advertises a version for the Watch, it doesn’t mean that it’s necessarily useful.

Apple Watch

If you’re tired of that cluttered apps screen on your Apple Watch, there’s an easy way to prevent apps from automatically showing up each time you install a new Watch-compatible app on your iPhone.

How to Stop New Apps From Automatically Installing on Your Apple Watch

1.) On your Apple Watch-connected iPhone, open the “Watch” app.

2.) On the “My Watch” screen, tap the “General” menu option.

3.) On the “General” menu screen, scroll down until you see a toggle-switch option labeled, “Automatic App Install.”

4.) If the switch is turned on, (it’ll be green when it’s turned on), tap it to shut it off.

Now, whenever you install an iPhone app that happens to have a Watch app included, it won’t automatically show up.

If you do find you want to include one of your recently installed apps on your Watch, simply scroll down a bit farther on the “General” menu screen until you see the “AVAILABLE APPS” section, as shown above. Here, you can tap the “INSTALL” button for any of the listed apps, and it will be installed on your Watch.

How To Transfer Your Videos From Your iPhone To Your Mac

If you have plans on moving some of your videos from your iPhone to your Mac but don’t know how; then you’re in luck, since today we’re going to be talking about two ways you can move your videos from your iPhone to your computer, that’s actually really easy to do.

The first way you can transfer your video clips, is through importing them from the Photos app. And the second way is through iCloud, which is typically the most preferred and easiest way to do it, since it’s normally already linked to your Mac, for easier access.

So here’s how to import videos from the Photos app

Step 1: Connect your iPhone to your Mac and launch the Photos app.

Step 2: Select your iPhone from the left-hand menu.

Step 3: Select the videos you want to import from the resulting list of thumbnails.

Step 4: If you want to delete the videos from your iPhone after the import, select Delete Items in the upper-right corner.

Step 5: Click the Import button in the upper-right corner. Then click Videos in the left-hand menu to see your imported videos from your iPhone, and you’re done.

And here’s how to transfer videos from iCloud

Step 1: First, you’re going to open System Preferences and click the iCloud icon.

Step 2: Log into your iCloud account.

Step 3: Make sure the box that’s directly beside Photos is checked.

Step 4: Once iCloud Photos is enabled, your videos will automatically and wirelessly sync and go to your photo library, which is located within the Photos app, and you should see all of your videos on your Mac that was originally on your iPhone.

And that’s how you transfer your videos to your Mac from the Photos app and from your iCloud in just 4-5 steps. If you would like to learn more ways to import videos from your iPhone, then you can always check out Apple’s official support page for more information.
