The first Apple Watch Series 7 units are already shipped and there appears to be an issue right out of the box. According to some users, third-party apps don’t appear with their icons and instead, they are invisible on the home screen.

Third-party app icons don't appear on Apple Watch Series 7

It was first spotted by a developer working on products related to Apple’s ecosystem. He clarifies that the simulator in Xcode displays the icons just fine but they don’t appear on the actual watch. Some believe that this is due to the new screen dimensions and resolution because the icons are perfectly fine on older watches, even when running watchOS 8.

A temporary workaround is to switch the home screen’s view to “List”. Keep in mind that the icons would still be missing but at least you’d know which app is which as the list view displays the names as well.
