How Do I Find My Lost iPhone 6s
I lost my iPhone 6s when I went shopping with my friends yesterday! And I searched on the internet to follow the method below to find my iPhone back.
And I guess that many of you may have the same experience with me, so I shared my method for all of you. Hope it’ s helpful for you.
Your iPhone have a Find My iPhone app if it is running iOS 7 or later. You need to ensure that it is ON. Or you can’t use the method to locate and find your iPhone. If you lost your iPhone and ensure that your Find My iPhone app is ON. The method will work for you.
Detailed Steps for Finding Lost iPhone:
First, you need to use the Find My iPhone app on another iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. Or you can sign in to icloud.com/find on a Mac or PC.
Next, tap the “My Devices” button at the top-left corner of the window on an iPad or iPhone. Select your lost iPhone from the list of devices (If you have other devices associated with your Apple ID, such as an iPad, it will be listed here as well). Or click the Devices menu at the top of the page if you are using the iCloud website.
If your iPhone is online and “Find My iPhone” can locate it, the map will center on your iPhone’s last-reported location. You can use this map to determine where you may have left it.
If your iPhone is lost nearby, you can click or tap the “Play Sound” button to make the iPhone play a notification sound. This will be played at maximum volume, which can hopefully help you track it down. Tap “OK” on your iPhone to stop the sound from playing.
You can also choose “Lock Mode” to lock the iPhone’s screen with either your preset passcode or a new one if you don’t have one set. You can also add a contact number and message that will be displayed on the screen if a nice person finds
If the iPhone is gone and you don’t think you’ll be able to recover it, you can choose “Erase iPhone” to wipe your iPhone of all your data. This is a last-resort option, and should only be chosen if you are worried sensitive or personal information will be revealed. If your iPhone is passcode-locked, your information is not retrievable.
Actually, there was an frustrating episode that I accidentally chose “Erase iPhone” because I thought I couldn’t find my iPhone 6s back and I recently hadn’t backed up my iPhone to iTunes or iCloud. So i had to download an third-party iPhone data recovery tool to help me recover my lost data. Luckily, it works very well. Most of my data, like photos, videos, contacts,etc. were all recovered.
