Customize the Wake Screen settings

Wake Screen on wrist raise
This is the easiest way to wake your Apple Watch. It will automatically perk up and be ready to go when you raise your wrist. Make sure that you have the orientation set up for which wrist you use.
Just go to General > Watch Orientation to make your choice. Then, enable the Wake Screen on Wrist Raise option by moving the slider to green.
Auto-launch audio apps
This convenient feature is ideal for those who listen to music or podcasts on-the-go. Instead of reaching for your phone to control the playback, the app will automatically display on your Watch for you to control it there.
Just move the Audio-launch Audio Apps slider to green and you’re good to go. And, we have a full tutorial on this feature for more details.
On screen wake show last app
This area lets you choose whether you want to see the last app you had open before your Watch went back to sleep.
Let’s say you are viewing your calendar and get distracted for a bit. You can set the screen to show the app you were looking at when you raise your wrist or tap to wake it.
Just make your selection, whether you want it session-based, time-based, or always and a checkmark will appear next to your choice.
If you prefer to tap your Apple Watch to wake it, then you can decide how long the display should stay on once you do. There are just two options which are wake for 15 or 70 seconds. Tap your choice and a checkmark will appear next to it.
Wake your Watch when you want
While there may not be tons of features for waking your Watch, keeping the screen on, and quickly seeing the last app you opened, there really doesn’t need to be. These Apple Watch Wake Screen features should have you covered.

When you create events in the iOS Calendar app, you can easily set an alert to remind you of that event. But, you’ll also notice that a time for the alert pops into your event alert automatically. This is the default time in your Calendar app and you can change it to suit your preference.
Once you set the default alert time you want, you won’t have to change it when creating the event unless you really need to and here’s how.
Create the Calendar default alert times
You can easily change the default alert times for birthdays, events, and all-day events in your Calendar app.
1) Open the Settings app.
2) Scroll down to and tap Calendar.
3) Tap Default Alert Times.

4) Choose from Birthdays, Events, or All-Day Events. You can change each one individually.
5) Pick the alert time you want to use. Then, when you return to the Default Alert Times screen, you will see your choice next to the type of event.

You’ll notice that the alert times available for birthdays and all-day events are exactly the same. This is because birthdays are considered all-day events. You have more options for regular events like 15 minutes, one day, or one week before.
Change the alert times for events
Now, when you create a Calendar event, you will see the default alert set for you. And, if you want to change the alert time for that particular event, just tap Alert and select your new time. You can also create another alert by tapping Second Alert and choosing a time.
