Apr 11, 2017

Melissa’s family Spring Break vacation was in sync with Dave’s March Madness vacation, so they all met up in Las Vegas, NV to take in the sights. Of course they couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit the local Apple Store where they had a great time chatting with “Apple Store Steve." He showed them some great new tips and they will share them with you! Full show notes are on our website InTouchwithiOS.com

3. Catch an incoming call on Apple Watch and place it on hold to answer it on iPhone: turn Digital Crown to scroll up then tap 'Answer on iPhone.' Your caller will be greeted by your “Digital Assistant” and placed on hold while you retrieve your iPhone. You can even ping your iPhone in the event you can not locate it. Same as the previous tip, tap and hold the iPhone ping icon and it will also flash the light to make it easier to locate by sight.
