How To Use Find My IPhone

Find My iPhone is an app and service provided by Apple Inc. that helps you to locate and protect your Apple devices if they have ever been lost or stolen. Here is some information about what Find My iPhone is and how you use it.



The Find My iPhone app helps you find not only your iPhone, but also your iPad, iPod touch, Mac, Apple Watch, or AirPods.


iPhone is available on all devices equipped with iOS5 or later and the app is free. You need a valid iCloud email account and a Wi-Fi network.

Find My iPhone App

The app is already on all Apple devices. You don’t need to install it and you can’t remove the app either. Just bring up the spotlight search by swiping down from the middle of your screen and type in Find My iPhone. Once you open the app, log in with your Apple ID.

Play a Sound

You can play a sound on your device to help you find its exact location. Apple even designed a specific sound for AirPods that will project across a room and farther.

Lost Mode

Once you realized your device has gone missing, you can put it in Lost Mode which locks it immediately and starts to track its location. The app will show you where your device has been over the past 24 hours. A really cool feature is that you can display your contact number on your device’s Lock screen so if your device is found, someone can contact you without accessing your personal data on the device.

Remote Erase

Did your apple product fall into the wrong hands? You can remotely erase your personal data and restore your Apple Watch, Mc, iPad, iPod touch and iPhone to its factory settings. You can restore it from your iCloud backup when you retrieve it.

Activation Lock

iCloud Homepage
