How Can I Find My iPhone if its Dead?. How can I find my iphone if its dead?
I suppose holding a seance isn't an option.
I'm serious! I need to find it.
Is there any chance it was stolen? You might be able to find it based on the location information embedded in the photos taken by the thief.
It isn't stolen, though gremlins may be involved.
You could try searching the house. Look in the last place you'd think of looking first.
If I can't think of where to look for it, I don't know the last place to look for it.
In the toilet.
Seriously. You wouldn't believe how many people drop them when sitting down to do their business.
Then I certainly don't have to worry about using the GPS with a dead battery to find it.
You should hope someone finds it and plugs it in to charge it.
Features like Find my Phone don't work when the device is offline, dead or just switched off. I don't want to wait for someone to possibly find it and plug it in.
Those features don't work if it isn't connected to the internet, either.
Or a wi-fi dead spot.
Find My Phone would work if someone plugged it into their computer to check it out, giving it some power through the USB as it is synced or searched.
I might as well use Find My Phone to disable it before someone accesses my data.
You have to have Find My Phone set up and activated before it died in order for that to work.
What can I do?
Report the phone lost or stolen. Log into your Apple account online and change all your passwords, so that someone checking out the phone can't log in as you.
I heard that a thief can put a stolen phone in recovery mode to restore it to system defaults. This deletes all my data, but it also removes the passcode so they can access it.
Then get the phone blacklisted so it won't work with the current phone number and tell your wireless carrier so you aren't billed for a thousand dollars worth of international calls.
Or land on the NSA watch list because of it.
Don't worry, they're already watching all of us.
