Apple Photos littered with Apple Watch screenshots

I’ve noticed that ever since I got my Apple Watch that my photo stream has been filled with seemingly random screenshots of my watch face. It’s easy to take a screenshot – simple hit the digital crown and the side button at the same time. So why the heck am I always causing these screenshots?


Today I finally discovered the root of the issue. When I’m on a video call at my standing desk I typically put my hands in my pockets to force myself to focus on the people talking. I get seriously distracted if I don’t do this. Turns out that’s the exact reason for all of the photos.


The edge of my pocket is hitting both buttons at the same time. Derrrrp!

  1. That’s hilarious. Reminds me of how I finally figured out why I was taking so many crotch shots with my new-at-the-time camera. Turns out it has a touch-screen display that’s on by default. As soon as I figured out how to turn it off, my crotch got a lot less screen time!
