  1. Track your lost iPhone. If you are using an iPhone and have an Apple ID, you can track your lost iPhone through any web browser or through your iPad. Location tracking needs to be turned on, but it is turned on by default for all devices with an Apple ID attached.

  2. Open the Find My iPhone app. This can be found from the iCloud website, or downloaded to your Apple devices from the App Store.

  3. Enter your Apple ID and password. In order to use the service, you will need to enter your Apple ID and Password in order to access the Find My iPhone service.

  4. Click on the Devices button. Once the Find My iPhone app opens, a map will be displayed. Click the Devices button to open a list of all the devices you have attached to that Apple ID.

  5. Select your missing device. From the list of devices, select your missing phone. The map will attempt to center on its location.

  6. If your phone has been turned off or the battery is dead, the map will display the last known location of the phone.

  3. A map will open, and it will center on the location of your phone. The information box in the top-left corner will tell you the last time that it was able to be located, as well as information on the general area.
