It's no fun to misplace your phone, but Apple has provided a way to track it down and recover it. However, with iOS 13 (& macOS Catalina) their tracking system has gotten a rebrand. "Find my iPhone", "Find my Mac", "Find my iPad", and "Find My Friends" are all now the same app called "Find My". It can be scary to lose your device, so we'll to cut the chase. This is how to track down your lost iPhone using iOS 13 or macOS Catalina:

Some watches are known only for their excellent functionality, while others are known purely for their iconic looks. Our watch bands, though? They are the very best equal mixture of both. We took two classic designs from the early 20th century and redesigned them for the future. The new Aviation Series for Apple Watch Bands are essential to a rugged gentleman's wardrobe. They're sleek, modern, and gorgeous. However, as Siri Hustvedt said, "There is no future without a past." So, let's take a look back to see the legacies that established these bands!

Our Apple Watches come with us on all of our adventures, collecting memories and paths. However, that means they can collect dirt and grime. Regular cleaning can help extend the life of your Apple Watch over time. It's especially important to give your Watch and band a good clean if you workout with it, wear it daily, and/or wear lotions.

We found a perfect way to represent our Midwest pride with the Leather Lowry Cuff for Apple Watch Series 1 & 2. With rugged but soft leather, it easily forms to the wearer’s wrist while offering a modern callback to traditional watches and it’s hand finished rugged stitching creates a relaxed strap that can easily be worn from the office to a night out with ease. In addition to being amazingly cool, this is a leather Apple Watch band that has some interesting origins too...

Here at Pad & Quill, we consistently strive to be Terminator of Apple watch bands in terms of toughness and durability (not in terms of causing an evil apocalypse, though). With the introduction of the Apple Watch Series 2 and it’s ability to spit out water, there was some general excitement. However, most people were waiting for something bigger and reacted like this:
Yes Tim Cook we know there's an Apple Watch, but we need those iPhone deets... #AppleEvent pic.twitter.com/TmyJIU7GQO

We here at Pad & Quill, however, were relieved and excited about this new tougher Apple Watch because it gave us a chance to design a tougher watch band that can handle anything, from world travels to grocery store runs for more Halloween candy. Enter the Field Band for Apple Watch Series 1&2 .

When we found out we could get our hands on a select stock of vintage leather from Europe, we didn’t just buy a little bit of it, we bought it all. Hailing from the 1950s with a beautiful patina color we created a leather Apple Watch cuff that will mold to your wrist and age with you and your watch. The Limited Edition 60 Year Luxury Leather Lowry Cuff for Apple Watch Series 1 & Series 2 comes from the time of Elvis, The Civil Rights Movement, and the Lindy and stands out as a cuff meant to last for years to come.

Spring has fully sprung up here in the frozen tundra, and that means one thing for me, destruction of IOS devices. I set a land speed record this year, shattering my iPhone 6s two times in 10 days. Mr. PQ has abandoned me as a product tester for our new Timberline cases. As using and giving feedback on our products is part of my job description, I am compelled to tote my iPhone and Apple Watch everywhere I go, including on a rigorous walk with Bear, the PQ mascot, my friend Angie and her dog Mason.

Hundreds descended upon San Francisco for Glance, the first ever conference to take an in-depth look at the Apple Watch. Where better to take a whole day to professionally geek-out over the Apple wearable than in Apple’s own backyard? The general consensus is that the Apple Watch is likely to mirror the growth patterns of the iPod and iPhone with exponential growth. It also mirrors the iPhone’s history in that the 1st Gen is gorgeous, but needs some work.

I don’t know that I’ll ever appreciate receiving jewelry for the holidays, Fruit Loop necklaces notwithstanding, as I tend to be an accessory minimalist. One might think this makes for a happy Mr. PQ because he would be walking around with more money and all, but that would be wrong. Mrs. PQ has a sturdy handful of hobbies for which expensive and fancy accessories are indispensable (i.e. the Smartfind Plus or Globalfix GPS beacons). This has absolutely nothing to do with a young Quill leaving the bow of the canoe in the lake, not understanding that the waves softly lapping against said canoe will continue lapping until they have pulled the canoe out into the lake and sunk
