Troubleshooting Tips for When Your Apple Watch Touch Screen Isn't Working
Having an Apple Watch is a great way to stay connected and organized. But when the touch screen isn’t working, it can be a real hassle. Fortunately, there are some troubleshooting tips that can help you get your Apple Watch touch screen back up and running. In this article, we’ll discuss some of the most common issues and provide some tips for troubleshooting them.
The most common issue with an Apple Watch touch screen is that it won’t respond to touch. This can be caused by a variety of things, including a dead battery, a faulty connection, or a software issue. Other common issues include the screen freezing, the touch screen being unresponsive, or the screen not turning on.
Check the Battery
The first thing you should do when your Apple Watch touch screen isn’t working is to check the battery. If the battery is dead, the touch screen won’t work. To check the battery, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and select the “Battery” tab. If the battery is low, you’ll need to charge it before the touch screen will work again.
Check the Connection
If the battery is fine, the next step is to check the connection between the Apple Watch and your iPhone. Make sure that the two devices are connected via Bluetooth and that the connection is strong. If the connection is weak or if the two devices are not connected, the touch screen won’t work.
Restart the Apple Watch
If the battery and connection are both fine, the next step is to restart the Apple Watch. To do this, press and hold the side button until the Apple logo appears. This will restart the device and may help to resolve any software issues that may be causing the touch screen to not work.
Update the Software
If restarting the Apple Watch doesn’t help, the next step is to make sure that the software is up to date. To do this, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and select the “General” tab. Then, select “Software Update” and follow the on-screen instructions to install any available updates.
Reset the Apple Watch
If all else fails, you may need to reset the Apple Watch. This will erase all of the data on the device, so make sure to back up any important data before proceeding. To reset the Apple Watch, open the Apple Watch app on your iPhone and select the “General” tab. Then, select “Reset” and follow the on-screen instructions.

Resetting an Unresponsive Apple Watch Screen
If your Apple Watch screen is unresponsive, try resetting it. To do this, press and hold the side button and the Digital Crown at the same time for at least 10 seconds. This should force the watch to restart. If that doesn’t work, try a hard reset by pressing and holding the side button and the Digital Crown for at least 10 seconds until you see the Apple logo.
Why isn’t my Apple Watch swiping up?
It sounds like your Apple Watch isn’t responding to your swiping up. It could be because the screen is dirty or there’s a software issue. Try cleaning the screen with a soft, lint-free cloth and restarting your watch. If that doesn’t work, you may need to contact Apple Support for help.
