In our daily life, our phones can get lost from time to time. We cannot blame anyone. Sometimes, even if we are cautious, we can experience this problem. If the phone you lost is an iPhone, there are several ways to find it.
Ping Your iPhone With Your Apple Watch
If you have lost your iPhone and can’t find it, your Apple Watch can help. You can ping your phone through your watch. For this, follow these steps:
- Swipe up from the bottom of your Apple Watch screen to open Control Center
- Scroll down until you find the Ping iPhone button. It is the button with the icon of an iPhone with a couple of lines on each side.
- Tap the Ping iPhone button once to make your device do a ping. Press and hold the same button to make your device ping and flash.
Ask for help from other Apple devices
Apple offers you several alternatives to find your iPhone. One of them is the Find My application, available on iPhone, iPad, and Mac devices. With this application, you can see the last location of your phone. Here is what you need to do:
- Open the Find My app on your other Apple device. It can be another iPhone, an iPad, or a Mac, but you need to make sure that device uses the same Apple ID as your lost iPhone.
- Go to the Devices tab. If you’re using an iPhone or an iPad, it will be located near the bottom of your screen. If you are on a Mac, you should see it near the top of the Find My window.
- Select the device you are trying to find.
- Tap Directions.
Get help from your iCloud account
Even if you don’t have another Apple device, the company lets you log into iCloud from any computer. The iCloud you have access to allows you to do many things. One of them is to use the Find My application. Here is what you need to do to find your iPhone:
- On a computer or smartphone, go to iCloud.com.
- Log in to your Apple ID. Make sure it’s the same Apple ID you use on your lost phone.
- Click Find iPhone. You may need to enter your Apple ID password again.
Before trying all these methods, you can ask the people around you or have your device ring with another phone. If you own an iPhone, these are the methods to try to find your phone when you lose it.
