It can be frustrating as well as shocking to see the black and white screen of your Apple Watch if you’ve not made any changes to the settings recently. While this may seem like a bug, in reality, it indicates playful misbehavior done by some family member or friends. Let’s find out the reason behind this color variance suddenly and how to fix it.
How to change the black and white screen of your Apple Watch back to color?
Some users reportedly complain that after they installed the most recent update for their Apple Watch and restarted it, the watch face suddenly changed from colors to black and white. This mainly happens when the Greyscale option gets enabled. It’s a built-in Accessibility feature in your smartwatch that assists users for whom color might impair visibility. So, if someone has set this filter, its settings will automatically apply system-wide. Here’s what you can do to fix this problem.
- Unlock your Apple Watch.
- Press the Digital Crown to display apps.
- Got to Settings.
- Navigate to the Accessibility setting.
- Scroll down to the greyscale option.
- Turn off the option.
Apple Watch has a range of built-in Accessibility features to help you get the most from your device. However, if you don’t need them, it’s better to keep them disabled even if they are enabled automatically following a recent update.
How do I change my Apple Watch back to color?
Firstly, unlock your smartwatch by entering the passcode.
Next, press the Digital Crown to display the apps in either Grid View or List View. Select the Settings entry from the list.
Then, navigate to the Accessibility section. Tap to open it.
Under it, scroll down to the Greyscale entry. If you see the option enabled, simply slide the toggle to the off position to disable it.
Instantly, the change will be applied across all settings, and you should find the black and white screen of your Apple Watch changing back to color.
That’s all there is to it. Hope it makes sense!
