I replaced my iPhone with the Apple Watch Ultra – here’s what happened

I normally don’t go anywhere without my iPhone. Over the years I have come to rely on it to get through the day. But while testing the new Apple Watch Ultra — Apple’s most premium smartwatch yet — I started to realize that it can do a lot of what my iPhone does.

At $799, the Apple Watch Ultra costs the same as the entry-level model iPhone 14. So, can anyone use the Apple Watch Ultra as a phone? Determined to find out, I threw away my iPhone for 24 hours and depended only on a smartwatch with cellular support to stay connected.
