We have all been in the situation when we are just about to leave the house and we cannot find our iPhone. Hidden by the same pixies that hide your car keys, they always seem to be in the strangest of places.
Apple have had a neat feature within Find My iPhone for a few years which I am still a little surprised that people do not know about. Most have heard of the stories of Police finding stolen iPhones after they were traced through the online login but still do not know about the alert feature.
To find your phone, you need to login to iCloud.com and enter your Apple ID credentials. After you have logged in, you can click on the “Find My iPhone” icon to view all your iCloud devices, including your missing iPhone, on a map. All this can be done on another iOS device using the Find my iPhone app with your logon details.
Once you phone has been located, click on the small “i” in the window and you will be presented with a number of options, just click Play Sound and the phone will begin to make a loud beeping sound allowing you to locate it. Be quick as it keeps getting louder until your find it!
