Use our Tips & Tricks to improve your efficiency! Our aim is to keep them relevant, concise & accurate.
If you’re asking the question ‘How Can I Track My iPhone?’ out of pure curiosity or if your phone has been lost or stolen, find out what you can do in order to track down your Apple device.
First and foremost, we’d definitely recommend downloading the Apple-produced ‘Find My iPhone’ app. It only takes a couple of minutes to set up and can be an absolute life-saver if ever your Apple product goes missing. Despite the name, the app can be downloaded onto most modern Apple products including the latest iPads and iPod touch as well as many iPhone models. When you first set up your new Apple product, one of the steps is setting up Find My iPhone but you can always download it at a later stage.
If you can see that the device is somewhere that it shouldn’t be then turn on ‘Lost Mode’. This will lock your device using a four-digit passcode and a message of your choice will appear on the device along with your mobile number. By enabling this feature the use of Apple Pay also becomes disabled on the device.
How can I track my iPhone without ‘Find My iPhone?’
- Change your Apple ID password using another device or via a PC or Mac. This way no one will be able to access your iCloud data, this includes iMessages & iTunes.
- Change passwords for any other accounts that could be accessed through the lost device. This includes any social media accounts, email accounts and mobile banking.
- Inform your mobile carrier of the device being lost or stolen – they have the ability to disable the account. This prevents the use of texts, data and calls.
- You also have the choice to speak to your local police department, this way if the device is found they are able to contact you to return the device.
