Track iphone location with app

Losing your phone isn’t necessarily something you think much about until it happens to you. And when it does, panic sets in. Fortunately for you, Apple provides a free suite of device-location tools called Find My iPhone that can help you figure out if you left your phone on the bus—or if it’s just in the couch cushions. If you aren’t yet using Find My iPhone, we’ll help you get started.

First and foremost, you’ll need an Apple ID and an iCloud account. There’s a good chance you already have both if you own an Apple product; if you don’t, visit iCloud.com , click the link labelled “Create yours now,” then follow the onscreen instructions.

Next, hop over to your iPhone, open the Settings app, then tap iCloud . Scroll down and tap Find My iPhone , and toggle the Find My iPhone switch to the On position (it’ll turn green) if it isn’t already. Tap Allow when prompted, and you should be all set.
