How to make all Apple Watch Home Screen icons appear same in size

The app icons on Apple Watch Home Screen can be viewed in 2 modes,

  • Grid View
  • List View

In Grid View, the icons around the borders or the edges of the Watch appear quite small in comparison to inner icons. This arrangement looks awful. Fortunately, these default settings can be changed and customized to suit one’s preferences. Apple Watch enables its users to make all Apple Watch Home Screen icons appear same in size. Here’s how it can be done!

Make all Apple Watch Home Screen icons appear same in size
