How to make carousel lists on watchOS

Paul Hudson    @twostraws   

Fully updated for Xcode 11.4

watchOS has a particularly common list style that can easily be replicated using List: rows in the list slide and scale up when they are moving onto the screen, then slide and and scale down when they are moving off the screen. This is particularly effective with chunkier, graphical rows – it’s almost like Apple’s old Cover Flow effect.

To enable this carousel effect, use the .listStyle() modifier with a new instance of CarouselListStyle, like this:

.listStyle(CarouselListStyle())

Note: this is available only on watchOS.
