When you are in a hurry or too lazy to pay attention, you do not care what you hold in your hand – which could be an iPhone, iPad or something expensive. Well, it’s the moment when the chances are high that you lose and when another person would try to steal. And, as a matter of fact, most of us do not use a device-specific tracking app – driven by unwavering faith that we will not lose the device.
Track your lost iPhone
But, wait, if you’re using iPad or iPhone, it’s an effective way to track your lost iPhone without a third-party tracking solution. Even if you are not able to get your iPad or iPhone back, you will at least be able to get the personal data wiped away, so that there will not be some sort of misuse or the exposure of your confidential information. You can also, if you want, lock your device if you did not lock it in the first place.
In this post, however, we have a step-by-step tutorial to use above mentioned feature and therefore to recover iPhone or iPad. The best part is that you can use the same service to track boyfriend phone as well.
Before you start
The method we are going to talk about needs an internet connection to find your lost iPad or iPhone. Either mobile data or Wi-Fi must be enabled. If there is no hope in these two cases, it is better to get another type of help. If you are sure – or somewhat optimistic – about the Internet connection, we can start.
Using Find My iPhone

Note: There is a feature named Find My iPhone, Find My iPad or Find My Mac you would find in your device. If you forgot to activate the feature while you set it up, you can give your hopes on Find My Phone.
If you have enabled the feature, you just need your Apple credentials to locate and find the lost device. It should be noted that there is no need to install the application Locate my iPhone in the device. Instead, you must have enabled the ‘Find My Phone’ feature. Thanks to Apple’s smart organization, no one will be able to disconnect your iCloud account without your Apple ID credentials.
