    me too. but at least with the iPhone app you need to type in your password to check it.

    They don't use Touch ID as identification for some reason.

    thumbs down.

    I use the Deliveries app. I can put in the order number and email, and it tracks my order. And the have a NC widget, so I just have to swipe down to pull it up.

    Great idea. I just bought it for my iPhone/ iPad and mac last week. I love that app.

    Downside is now it says 46 DAYS Apple watch every time i open it.

    In NC, at the bottom, there's an Edit button. Tap it to add, remove, or organize widgets.

    Are you on Yosemite? if so you need to add it in the right Notification area. Look towards the bottom. there is a Edit button there to add more.

    Ironically the app itself has been updated to provide an :apple:Watch version. :cool:

    Thank you, this was the dumb piece I couldn't quite find. I only started using NC (iOS) widgets very recently, when I got my 6+, and I just spent 15 minutes going through every possible setting screen for the Deliveries app and iOS trying to find this. :)

    ----------


    Thank you, I meant the IOS widget. But I remember using the dashboard widget back when I was waiting for my first iPad, I should get that set up again too, so thank you.

    I'm so used to just putting my ups/fedex/etc tracking numbers in I forgot Deliveries could do vendor-specific stuff. This is very nice, especially since the Apple Store app requires a password every time and I'm slightly nervous I may get hit with an order cancellation (I had 3 active watch orders at one point, do not now, still nervous). So compulsive reloading is happening.

    Yes, but do you need to enter a certain nr in the app?

    The Apple order number and your email address work.

    The deliveries app allows you to enter the Apple Store order number (there is no shipping tracking number yet, hence the "Delivery Date Unknown"). It then displays what Apple says. Right now, it says processing.

    OMG THANKS. deliveries is one of my favorite apps anyway. Had no idea it would track the watch with the order number AND that I could swipe down to see it. MUCH easier than hitting the Apple Store each time.
