It is sometimes said that the most commonly used function of the Apple Watch is & # 39; Ping iPhone & # 39 ;, a control center option that enables a paired iPhone to make a loud noise to find it. But what happens if the Apple Watch is lost?
Fortunately, there are steps you can take to reopen or (if stolen) to prevent a thief or thief from opening it and accessing the data. In this article we tell you how to fulfill these two options.
Use & # 39; & # 39; Found me & # 39; s on your iPhone
Like all Apple mobile devices, the Apple Watch can be accessed using the My Search app. (This was formerly known as Find My iPhone, but changed its product to reflect the functionality of many features in it.) It's probably the easiest way to trace the wasted space on a paired iPhone.
There are two lines to this. You must find and open the & # 39; Search My iPhone & # 39; app (the icon is a green circle), then touch & # 39; devices & # 39; in the menu bar below. You may need to enter your Apple ID and / or password before any device locations are shown.
By default all your devices will be shown to you, but if they are too scatterbrained, the map may not be very useful. So touch the clock in the list below the map, and we'll see that.
You will be able to see not only that you are on this street but also your house number. (To try now, the app provides the address of our next door neighbor, which is very impressive). Touch the car icon for directions to the Apple Maps.
Alternatively, you can open the & # 39; Clock & # 39; on the iPhone, touch your watch up, then press the & # 39; I & # 39; and finally & # 39; get my Apple & # 39;
This will open the & # 39; Gets & # 39; anyway, and it seems like a long way to go. But it has the slight advantage of automatically jumping to the location of your Apple Watch device, which is why we like it.
This app is more than just detecting device location and getting directions. Once you have selected the device, you will also see a selection of & # 39; Play Sound & # 39; – to do it
You can mark it as lost, which disables Apple Pay and lets you block and track an app, and provide contact information so the search engine can easily retrieve it.
Finally, you can choose to receive notifications when the clock is available and delete it completely. Swipe menu to see the full set of options.
Use Find My iPhone, on your Mac
If you find it too easy, look for a Mac (or PC) clock instead.
Go to Cloud.com to your favorite browser and enter your Apple ID and password. Click the & # 39; Search My iPhone & # 39; If you update Catalina you will just be called & # 39; find my site & # 39;
Just like on the iPhone, you'll see a map showing the location of all your Apple devices; Due to the larger screen it can be easier to separate information, but it won't be much better to accompany you if you decide to chase the clock on your car or car (please don't go to the place where you found your tool, or face the thieves. Call the police).
The display is also slightly different: to focus on your watch only, instead of seeing all the devices, click on the drop-down menu, which will automatically be labeled as & # 39; All machines & # 39; Click on your watch and you'll do it zoom.
As before, your options are & # 39; Play Sound & # 39 ;, enter & # 39; Lost Mode & # 39; or & # 39; Clear Apple Watch & # 39; – nuclear option.
And there we have it! We hope this tutorial helps you find your watch. If you have lost an iDevice, try & # 39; How to recover a lost iPhone or iPad & # 39 ;.
