Prerequisite for finding a lost iPhone
Find My is a tool for all Apple devices, using which lost or stolen Apple devices can be easily found. Only if you have this feature enabled on your lost iPhone can you find the lost or stolen iPhone.
The good thing is that the Find My feature is able to find the location of your iPhone even if it is lost. Because if this feature is turned on, Find My Tool pings the last location before the battery is low in the phone. As a result, even if the lost iPhone or any other Apple device is turned off, the idea of its final location can be found.
So to find a lost iPhone, it is very important to have the “Find My iPhone” feature turned on. To turn on the Find My iPhone feature:
- Enter the settings of the iPhone

If this feature is turned on, the phone will automatically save the location to the Apple account if the battery is low, so that the last location of the iPhone will be known even if it is not charged.
If you have an Apple Watch and you can set up the Find My feature, it will alert you about your iPhone. Apple Watch Alert can be set for any device or item besides phone.
