If you are the lucky owner of an Apple Watch Series 7, you may experience peculiarities with the “Honeycomb” app display. This is reported by various developers who are themselves affected by their programs.

Apple Watch Series 7 Icons Disappear

According to James Thomson, the developer of the popular Carrot weather app, the problem with the missing icons is limited to the 45 mm model of the Apple Watch Series 7.

Apparently, a bug is causing icons and complications on the larger Smartwatch display of the Series 7 to not be displayed correctly and not be visible. The icon problem cannot be checked on the Xcode simulator, according to the developer.

In the meantime, however, there seems to be a workaround for the icon bug on the Apple Watch Series 7: Users with “invisible icons” can either wait for the app to be updated via the Apple App Store or the corresponding app with the missing ones Remove icons manually or then add them again. The newly downloaded program version will then have the working app symbols and complications.
