Find My iPhone is a very useful Apple innovation. It lets users find their little but costly (and increasingly important) everyday phones. In addition to the iPhone, the feature can also be used to locate your iPad and even your Mac computer.
With Find My iPhone, you can trace the location of your phone, and also set it to make noise so you can find it seamlessly. Unlike several other features, however, you will need to enable it before making use of it. Let's show you how below:
How Can I Enable Find My iPhone On My iPhone Or iPad?
- Click "Settings."
- Click on your Apple ID (this will be your name. You will see "Apple ID, iCloud, iTunes & App Store" under it).
- Click on iCloud (it will be seen at the top of the second set of options).
- Swipe down and click "Find My iPhone" (or "Find my iPad").
- Click on "Find My iPhone" in the next display to toggle it. You will now be able to find your iPhone (or iPad) using your cloud ID.
