Third party app icons not showing up on Watch Series 7

Initial users of the Apple Watch Series 7 out of the box are reporting a number of strange glitches with third-party apps. In addition to the missing app icons, many also complain about the small widgets on the watch face that display information from various apps.

The issue was identified by a developer working on products related to the Apple ecosystem; He explains that it displays icons just fine in his simulator in Xcode, but they don’t show up in real time. Some think this is due to the new screen sizes and resolution. Because the icons work fine on old watches even when running watchOS 8.

It is not clear what causes the problem. However, it is said that the new Apple Watch has a larger screen than the Apple Watch Series 6 and therefore has a higher pixel count. This does not appear on Apple Watch Series 6 or older models with watchOS 8.

Users who change the application view to “List” say that the problem has been resolved to some extent. But although the names of the applications are visible, the icons still do not appear.
