Losing a device can be troublesome, especially if it is a smart device such as a smartphone, tablet, smartwatch, laptop or music player. Apple uses its Find My feature to help users locate their iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or Apple Watch. However, users can also search their Apple devices using the embedded voice assistant – Siri.
However, the lost device must be connected to the Internet for Siri to quickly locate the device. Otherwise, you will get notifications only after the lost device is connected to the internet again. Apple has shared a handy guide on its support page that helps users find their lost iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac and Apple Watch devices. It is also important to note that in order to find any device using Siri, users will need to link their device to their iCloud account so that the method can work seamlessly.
Now it comes to how to find your lost iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac or Apple Watch using Siri? Finding a lost device using Siri is quite easy, however, users need to note that they can only be found if the lost device is connected to the Internet using Wi-Fi or cellular data. Here’s how for devices running iOS 14…
- Summon Siri by either the voice command “Hey Siri” or by pressing the Home button, Side button, or Top button.
- Ask Find My ‘X’ (replace ‘X’ with the name of the lost device, such as iPhone or Apple Watch).
- Siri will then show the location of the linked devices on the map in the Find My app.
- In addition, Siri will also play a beeping sound on the lost device to make it easier to locate.
- If the lost device is offline, Siri will send a command regardless, and a notification will be sent to that device once it’s back online.
However, it is advised that if users feel that their device is lost and cannot be found easily, they should register an FIR in their nearest police station regarding the lost device.
