    Has anyone else tried the "Ping Your Watch" feature? Go to Glances (swipe up from the Watch/Wake screen), and and press the button with waves coming out either side of the phone.

    Note: do NOT do this when anyone nearby is sleeping! It's loud as hell, whether the phone is on mute or the ringer volume is turned down low.

    For people like me, who regularly lose their phone while it is on silent, this will be a godsend. I didn't know anything about this feature until I hit the button to see what would happen, but I can see myself getting a lot of use out of it in future!

    The Find My iPhone app has always been able to ping your phone (or even iPad) in this way, but it's more of a pain to do, so this is a nice feature for sure.

    Yeah, that's been available for years. I use it all the time. Good to see it more accessible though.
