Find my lost iPhone or iPad

Sometimes it’s your keys. Other times it’s your glasses. Misplacing things happens all the time. The good news is, if you misplace your iPhone or iPad, Find My iPhone can help you find it.


u lose your iPhone or iPad, MobileMe can help you find it with Find My iPhone. Just enable Find My iPhone in the MobileMe settings on your iPhone or iPad.* Then sign in to me.com from any computer or using the Find My iPhone app on another iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to display its approximate location on a full-screen map.

Display a message or play a sound to help you find it.

Say you’ve just used the Find My iPhone feature, and it turns out you left your iPhone or iPad at the doctor’s office. Not to worry. You can write a message that will be displayed on your iPhone or iPad. Something like, “Oops, left my iPhone behind. Please call me at 408-999-9999.” Your message appears on the screen, even if it’s locked. And if the map shows you that your iPhone or iPad is nearby — say, at home under a pile of laundry — yet you still can’t find it, you can tell MobileMe to play a sound that overrides the ringer volume or silent setting on your device.

Set a passcode lock remotely.

Once you realize you haven’t simply misplaced your iPhone or iPad at home, you may want to protect its contents until it’s safely back in your hands. Sign in to your MobileMe account and remotely set a four-digit passcode lock to prevent people from using your iPhone or iPad, accessing your personal information, or tampering with your settings.

Protect your privacy with Remote Wipe.

Addresses, phone numbers, email, photos. Your iPhone or iPad contains important and personal information — information you probably don’t want in the hands of a stranger. So if you lose your iPhone or iPad and displaying a message on it hasn’t resulted in its safe return, you can initiate a remote wipe to restore it to the factory settings.* If you eventually find your iPhone or iPad, you can restore your email, contacts, calendars, and bookmarks by enabling your MobileMe account on your device. Or connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer and use iTunes to restore the data from your most recent backup.
