The one thing I tend to misplace the most is my phone. It’s a mini attack that I am still not used to or have learned better from! And I’ve realised that asking people to call my phone to find it isn’t the best solution for me, personally. Because there’s a 99% chance my phone is on silent. And if you relate with me on this then I am here to help you out. This one’s for iPhone users though, so scroll down to check out the easiest way to find your misplaced phone if its on silent.
All you need is a desktop or laptop and your iCloud login details. Sign in to your account on iCloud.com and click on the ‘Find My iPhone‘ option. It will show up the location of your phone, in case you misplaced it outside of your home. And if you already know its somewhere in your home itself, then all you need to do is tap on the dot on your iPhone. A box will then come up on your screen with three options—click on the ‘play sound‘ option. This will enable your phone to ping loudly, even if its on vibrate or silent.
For those of you who’re bougie and have an apple watch, life’s much easier for y’all! You’ll find an option to ping your phone in the control centre. Tap on it and your phone will ring no matter what mode it is on.
