WatchOS 10 is crap compared to 9. Everything I use the watch for now takes more taps and clicks. Change for the sake of change.

I absolutely appreciate updates that fix things, but, what is so hard to say WHAT you fixed? I get security things that they may not want to further detail, but not “bugs”

Agree 100%. It's also frustrating that certain swipes and button presses that I already have muscle memory for do completely different things now. But the most annoying thing is that they got rid of the customizable Dock. There are multiple apps that I would use all the time that cannot be added to the new Shortcuts interface. Scrolling through the alphabetical list to find them is tedious and takes forever, and trying to tap a tiny icon in the useless grid view is difficult for anyone with adult-sized hands.

What exactly is a bug fix these days? The bugs are no longer broken? New and improved bugs? Bug junkies getting their high/fix?
