The long-awaited Always-On screen in Apple Watch Series 5 is very useful. But, if you're not a fan, you can disable it. That's how.
The long-awaited Always-On screen in Apple Watch Series 5 is very useful. You can look at your watch and see the time without having to lift your wrist. A useful feature if you are exercising or if you want to know how much longer you will be stuck in a seemingly endless meeting.
If you prefer not to use the Always On screen, you can disable it. We will show you how to do this directly on the watch and in the Watch app on your iPhone.
Disable the screen always on on your Apple Watch
To disable the screen always on on your watch, press the digital crown button.
If you are viewing applications as a list, slide up to scroll down and then touch Configuration .
If your applications are displayed on a grid, place your finger on the grid and move it until you see the settings icon and touch it.
Scroll down and touch Display and brightness .
Touch Always on .
Touch the Always on button to deactivate the function. The toggle button turns gray when it is off.
If you are deactivating Always On so that your private information does not appear in the sphere of the clock when you are not looking at it, activate the option Hide sensitive complications . This will hide private information on the watch when you are not fully awake.
Disable Always On in the Watch application on your iPhone
You can also disable the Always-On screen using the Watch application on your iPhone. Touch the Watch icon on your home screen.
Scroll down and touch Display & Brightness .
Touch Always On . 
Touch the Always On button to deactivate the function. The toggle button turns gray when it is off.
Again, if you only want to hide information privately when the clock is not fully awake, you can enable option Hide sensitive complications .
The permanent power on function is specific to the Apple Watch Series 5. However, there are many great features of watchOS 6 and you can upgrade to watchOS 6 on any Apple Watch Series 1 and later (but not in the original Apple Watch series of 2015). You must also be using an iPhone 6s or later with iOS 13 or later.
