Nothing to despair has thought of everything so you don’t lose sight of your iPhone or any other device of the same brand. “Find My iPhone”, or simply “Find My” because it works for iPad and Mac too, is a handy feature for locating any lost or misplaced device.

To use Find My iPhoneyou will first have to access Settings from your cell phone and then choose your ID . Then select “Find My” and activate it. To see your device when it’s offline, enable offline search. If you want your device’s location to be sent to Apple when the battery is low, turn on “Send Last Location”. Remember that if your Apple Watch and AirPods are paired with iPhone, they’re automatically set up when you enable Find My.

FIND MY IPHONE | Options to find your cell phone

Find My works with location services, so to get started, you first need to tap Settings > Privacy > Location Services and activate the control.

Through the application, you can make the iPhone sound an alarm even if it was in silent mode or activate a notification every time Find My locate the device.

When you mark it as lost, your device will be locked, requiring your password to view its content. If your phone is offline, it will lock when turned on and you will receive an email notification to track its location.

You will also be able to erase the information on your device remotely so that no one can access your private life. If you had credit, debit, or prepaid cards in Apple Pay, Lost Mode suspends that feature so no one can accrue charges to your account.
