Apple Watch tip: auto-install all apps

This past week I set up a new Apple Watch and I ticked off the box for auto-installing all apps on my phone. I’ve been extremely selective in the past but realized maybe it didn’t matter much with the larger screen on the new watches.

A couple of days later, having 2FA and password manager apps on my new watch saved my ass royally when a cab drove over my accidentally dropped phone in NYC last week.

At the Apple store, I had to log in to my Apple account to get a new replacement phone, but with a completely broken phone holding all my passwords, I couldn’t do it.

Having my password manager on my watch saved me.
