How to Find Your iPhone When It's on Silent

2 Easy Ways to Find Your iPhone When It's on Silent

Like keys and pretty much every other item in your life, you can easily misplace your iPhone somewhere in your house. While you could normally just have a friend or someone call it, sometimes your iPhone will be on silent — and good luck attempting to find it that way. Thankfully, we found two ways to get the job done when the ringer isn't on.

  • Use Find My iPhone — Go to iCloud.com on a desktop or laptop, sign in, and click on "Find My iPhone." The website will show the location of where your phone is, in case you don't remember where you actually left it. If you already know where your iPhone is, tap the dot on your iPhone and a box should appear with three options. Click the "Play Sound" button and, regardless of whether your iPhone is on silent or vibrate, a pinging sound will ring loudly. Ta-da!

  • Get a speaker or boom box — First, call your phone. After that, grab a speaker with long cords and walk around the house playing any sort of tune. If you're lucky, the speaker will start to make weird noises, and when those get louder, it means you're closer to your phone. The less loud and frequent the sounds are, the farther away you're moving from your phone.

Hopefully, now you'll always be able to find your iPhone, no matter what seat cushion it might be under. Just remember — always keep "Find My iPhone" turned on or else you might as well break out a flip phone and start using that again.
