Brett’s Apple Watch Tip: Just got a MagSafe Duo charger from Apple (I’ll report on that in a future episode) and was excited to try out the Apple Watch Nightstand mode, thinking it would keep the watch on all the time … it doesn’t. In order to see the time, you’ll need to either move towards the Watch or tap it, which isn’t always easy to do in the dark. But previously, I would have my iPhone sitting next to me and have to pick it up, so this is better. Just nice to put the Watch to use while it’s charging overnight.

Jeff’s Apple Watch Tip: Apple Watch Theater Mode - This turns on Silent Mode and the screen stays dark until you tap or press a button. You can also wake your watch screen gradually by turning the Digital Crown. How to open Control Center:  Touch and hold the bottom of the watch face. Wait for Control Center to show, then swipe up. You can open Control Center from any screen.  To close: Swipe down from the top of the watch face, or press the Digital Crown.
