In watchOS 5, you can rearrange the Control Center to put the Control Center features that you use at the top, so they're quicker to access when you swipe up on your Apple Watch.

Unfortunately, there's no way to remove features you don't often use, but you can bury those less desirable options at the bottom of the menu.
  1. Bring up the Control Center by swiping upwards on the Apple Watch's display from the watch face.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom.
  3. Select "Edit."
  4. While the Control Center icons are wiggling, use a finger to pull an icon out of its position and then drag it into a new one.
  5. When finished, tap "Done."
That's all there is to it. It's a simple little function that you might not think to look for, but it can be handy if there are Control Center features that you use on a regular basis because you're able to get to them more quickly.

Not getting this update on my S0 but will be getting it on my S4 this autumn! I tried out the S3 at the store the other day and it just eats my S0 for lunch. It's like a completely different device. Can't wait. I think it took me this long to try it out because I didn't want to be sad about my S0. Really looking forward to watchOS 5 on a new device.

Unfortunately this will apply to the <.0001% who have watchos5 installed on their watches now. Hopefully I’ll remember this article when os5 launches months from now!

I'll just remember that I can do it, not how. At least it's not hidden behind some odd gesture or another.
