Solutions to Common Problems When You Have Your Phone, Use Find My iPhone to Track It Down
To restore functionality of Find My iPhone, please follow these instructions in order. When you have access to your device and are able to make adjustments, these solutions will work.
Get your battery charged up. An iOS 15.2- or later-enabled iPhone can still transmit its position while in Power Reserve mode (when it still has power but not enough to switch on), but a completely dead device can’t.
Look into your Apple ID. Find My cannot be used on any Apple device that is associated with a separate Apple ID. If you want to check the email address associated with your phone’s name, navigate to Settings > [your name]. You’ll need to use this ID to access iCloud and locate your missing device.
Activate the Find Me feature. If you haven’t activated Settings > [your name] > Find My, Apple won’t be able to locate your devices on its map. Turn on both the Find My iPhone and Find My network toggles. The first method uses a network connection and electricity to locate the device, while the second uses Bluetooth to do the same in the absence of either.
Choose Send My Location if you want your phone to submit its last known location to Apple when the battery dies.
Verify the device’s GPS settings. If you want Find My iPhone to work, you’ll need to enable location sharing with Apple. If it isn’t already, launch the settings menu and navigate to Privacy & Security > Location Services.
View the current network status. The ability to broadcast one’s whereabouts requires not only battery life, but also a stable internet or Bluetooth connection, which is not standard on an iPhone. Check the Bluetooth setting in the settings menu to make sure it’s enabled, and then visit a web page in Safari to see whether you have network connectivity.
Regulate the time on the iPhone. A misaligned phone’s clock or calendar can cause problems with phone calls. First, make sure the toggle next to Set Automatically is turned on by going to Settings > General > Date & Time.
Make sure you’re using the latest version of iOS. If the phone’s OS isn’t up to current, you might not be able to use certain features, such Find My. See if an updated version of iOS is available by going to Settings > General > Software Update.
The iPhone needs to be restarted. There’s a chance that if Find My iPhone stops working, it’s merely a momentary glitch that can be fixed by rebooting your device. To turn your phone off, press and hold the side or top button until the Slide to Power Off option displays, then slide across the screen. In order to force a phone restart, you must continue holding the same button.
Issues with Find My I Phone? Here’s What to Do when You’re Not Near Your Phone.
However, if you’re having difficulties locating an iPhone or other Apple device using Find My, there are still a few things you may do. Check that you are using the correct Apple ID by signing in with that account first.
The iCloud website will only show you devices that are signed in with the same Apple ID as your computer. For example, if you’re trying to locate your phone using a public computer, the person who owns the computer is probably logged in.
