We've all had times when we received a call at an inopportune time — or forgot to silence our iPhone in a crowded space. The Apple Watch can make these situations slightly less embarrassing by letting you silence all your devices with one quick gesture. That means no fumbling around for your iPhone in a purse or pocket to hit the ignore button anymore. Here's how to do it!
How to quickly mute an incoming call on Apple Watch
To mute an incoming call on Apple Watch, simply place your hand over the screen so your palm comes in contact with and covers the entire front. The call will instantly be silenced on both your Apple Watch and your iPhone.
This Watch gesture does essentially the same thing as hitting the Power button on your iPhone — which means that if you need to slip out and answer your call, you still can: The ringer will just be muted until you can get somewhere appropriate to pick up your phone.
