If you’ve been wondering how multitasking will work on the Apple Watch, we’ve got the answer for you. All you need to do is a double-tap, that will bring you to your most recently used apps. As pointed out by CultofMac (via Reddit), the Apple Watch supports a couple of handy double-tap actions, one of which is for the Digital Crown as well. Turns out double-tapping the Digital Crown switches you between your two most recently opened apps.
Reddit user colinstalter noticed this handy little shortcut:
“Double-tapping the Digital Crown switches you between your two most recently opened apps! It’s awesome. I just messed with it at an Apple Store. It makes it really easy to jump between actions if you are multitasking. It’s also a super quick way back to the watch face if you’ve just been in one app”.
Another double-tap action is for the side button. Simply double-tap the side button in front of an NFC terminal to pay with Apple Pay (as shown in the GIF above).
I personally believe it’s a really handy feature and will be used quite frequently in real life. It also goes on to show that Apple really does thinks of everything.
