When you block someone on apple watch, you prevent calls, messages, and FaceTime requests from that person. You can use blocking on any paired iPhone, so it’s easy to manage settings for all your devices.

To get started, make sure that your paired Apple Watch is charged and connected to Wi-Fi or cellular. Then open the App Store and download any software updates.

You can also use Screen Time to set goals and see how much time you spend on apps or in certain activities. This is a great tool to help kids stay focused, especially when studying or doing homework.

Kid-friendly features make Apple Watch the perfect choice for families. Parents can approve who their kids call or text, and Family Sharing gives everyone an allowance they can use to buy apps and music. Plus, safety features like Fall Detection and Emergency SOS help keep older family members safe.

If you’re not sure who a suspicious caller is, you can turn on 'Show My Caller ID' to hide your number. This doesn’t stop the caller from knowing who you are, but it can help if you’re worried about unwanted spam calls.

Blocked contacts can still leave voicemails, but you won’t receive a notification. Blocked people won’t receive a notification that they’ve been blocked on your Apple Watch, so they won’t know that you have muted them. To unmute someone, open the Messages conversation and tap the name or number at the top of the info page.
