Apple Watch could completely detach from the iPhone

This is one of the pleasant surprises of watchOS 6, but we know that the update will also bring new watch faces, new apps, new features, and direct access to the App Store when it arrives this fall. But not all built-in Watch apps have iOS counterparts so this tactic does not work for majority. Much of the Apple Watch's functionality depended on you also having an iOS device on hand, but over the years, that link began to sever as the company made the wearable more autonomous.

This month we've all the news from WWDC 2019, including a first look at iOS 13, iPadOS, tvOS 13, watchOS 6, and we reveal why the real star of WWDC was privacy. Apple will allow users to uninstall System apps that can be found only on Apple Watch. This only leads to the honeycomb app drawer of the Apple Watch getting a bit more crowded which could confuse users.

This will apparently include apps that you were unable to remover, these includes Apple's own apps like the Alarm, Timer, Radio and more.

Apple is setting up App Store pagegs of all the pre-loaded apps in watchOS 6 so that users can download it from the App Store if they need them again after uninstalling it.

This is expected to come in watchOS 6 alongside a new dedicated App Store, a menstrual cycle tracking app and a service that listens to ambient noise to help protect your hearing. Apps like ECG that is available only in specific regions, can be uninstalled.
