1 Use Apple Watch with Cellular connection
7. Finding my iPhone
I’m only slightly embarrassed to admit I do this just about every day. I putmy iPhone down somewhere in my single-story, 1100-square foot home, and 10minutes later I have no idea where I left it. Before the Apple Watch, I wouldpace around looking, getting frustrated, and eventually bothering my husbandto call the darn thing. Now I swipe up on my watch face to Glances, and tapthe magic iPhone-locating button in the Control Center. My iPhone pings. Ifind it. My family rolls its eyes at me. Everyone’s happy.Susie OchsNow Playing gets constant use, at home, at work, and when I don’t want to digout my iPhone during a commute.
10. Apple TV Remote
I don’t lose my Apple TV remote enough to stick a Tile on it, although I can’twait for Apple to release one you can “page” from your phone, or dare I sayyour Apple Watch. (My son did hide it in his toy garbage truck once, afterall.) But even when I know where my Apple TV remote is, sometimes it’s wayacross the whole entire room, so I use the Remote app on my Apple Watchinstead. It does everything but the Siri and dictation features.It’s a shame the app didn’t work with the newest Apple TV immediately atlaunch, but it does as of tvOS 9.1, and I use it all the time. I hope theforthcoming Apple TV app that Eddy Cue announced on John Gruber’s podcast backin February has an equally handy Apple Watch component too.
