The new Find My app combines Find My iPhone and Find My Friends into a single, easy-to-use app on iOS, iPadOS, and now macOS. Find My can help you locate your devices and your friends and family. And now it can help you find your devices even when they’re offline.
You take your devices everywhere. Which means you might leave them anywhere. Whether they’re in a conference room or under a sofa pillow, chances are they won’t be lost for long. The Find My app helps you locate not only your iPhone, but also your iPad, iPod touch, Mac, Apple Watch, or AirPods.
See all your devices on a map.
Is your iPad at home or back at the office? Use the map to get a full picture of where your devices are — and where a missing one might be. Some devices can also mark their location when the battery is critically low, to help you find them even if they run out of power.
Play a sound to find your device.
When you can’t find something but think it’s nearby or around others who might hear it, you can play a sound to pinpoint its location. Your AirPods have a specifically designed sound that can project across a room — and even farther.
Put it in Lost Mode.
If your device goes missing, put it in Lost Mode to lock it immediately and start tracking its location. You can also display a message with a contact number on your device’s Lock screen, so whoever finds it can call you without accessing the rest of its information.
Erase it with ease.
Worried that your device has fallen into the wrong hands? You may want to erase it remotely to delete your personal data and restore your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or Apple Watch to its factory settings. If you retrieve it, you can restore it from your iCloud backup.
Locked down. Automatically.
Activation Lock is designed to prevent anyone else from using or selling your device.* When you enable Find My on your device, Activation Lock is turned on automatically. Your Apple ID and password will then be required before anyone can erase your device or reactivate it.
Find your devices. Even when they’re offline.
Find My can help you locate a missing device — even if it’s offline and sleeping — by sending out Bluetooth signals that can be detected by Apple devices in use nearby. These devices then relay the detected location of your device to iCloud so you can locate it in the Find My app. It’s all anonymous and encrypted end-to-end so no one, including Apple, knows the identity of any reporting device.

Keep up with the
people in your life.
Invite friends and family members to share their locations. So you can keep in touch with one another, coordinate around an event, or know when a family member has arrived home safely.
Put your friends and family on the map.
When you share your location with friends, you’re all in the loop. Find each other more quickly and stay connected with ease. Share your location for an hour, a day, or indefinitely as you see fit.
Get notifications based on location.
You can set up notifications for when friends and family leave or arrive at a place — making meetups a cinch. And so no one’s privacy is compromised, they’ll be notified when you set one up. You can also use parental controls to set up alerts and notifications, so you know when your child has arrived at a friend’s house or departed from school.
Your location data stays private.
Just like every Apple product, Find My is designed to keep you in control of your data. Apple receives location information only when you actively locate your device, mark it as lost, or enable Send Last Location. Location data is retained for a maximum of 24 hours and is fully encrypted on Apple’s servers. And when Find My is used to locate an offline device, everyone’s information is protected with advanced end-to-end encryption so that no one, including Apple, knows the location or identity of any of the participating users or devices.
