    Hi everyone. Whenever I use my iphone maps app, (every Wed and Sat due to work), the battery on my iwatch is depleted within hours. I never use my watch as a gps, so how do I remove the maps app from my watch? I have closed all notifications and "mirror my phone" etc on the maps app on the watch. Help? Many thanks.

    To remove the built in Apple Maps app on your Apple Watch, you‘d have to delete it from your iPhone. This will sync to your watch. The app won‘t be available to use with CarPlay, when you do this.

    Thanks, I’ve realised that is the only way - but I do need maps on my iPhone. I guess I just have to realise that I will deplete my iwatch battery when I use maps. :)

    Go to the Watch app on the iPhone. Open the Maps app under My Watch. Turn off everything there. That should help.

    Thanks twerppoet - I have done that, but no joy. I've now re-started my watch - perhaps that will make a difference.

    I will do that. My next road trip around France is on Wednesday - I’ll you know what happens. :)

    Success - it now works fine. I’ve just done a round trip of 6 00 odd km and my I watch battery is still working! YAY. Thanks everyone.
