Imagine a time in your life when you have lost something, more specifically an Apple product? Well then this is the article for you.

If you didn’t know about it, there is an automatically installed app when you get an Apple device. It’s called “Find My”, and it’s a tracker for all of your devices. It helps you find the approximate location of any device that belongs to you.

Find my also has a sound player for when you want to hear where your device is. This is the most effective way of searching for the device.

Apple also updated the software and made it so that you can have a guider. You can click on the button that says “locate” and then the app will identify the location of your device and lead to the product.

There is also an Apple map that gives you directions to the device. It’s not very accurate but it will lead you to the general location.

Find my is very helpful and if it gets to the point where it’s super advanced, you are likely to never lose another product again.
