An AirPod Hack to Find Your Lost iPhone on Silent

This Genius AirPod Hack Helps Locate Your Lost iPhone When It's on Silent

We've likely all been there. You put down your phone for two seconds to go to the bathroom, answer the door, and grab a snack, and when you come back to where you thought you left it, it's basically slipped off the face of the Earth, never to be seen again. If you're the kind of person who likes to keep their phone on silent pretty much 24/7 (aka me) and you don't enjoy turning your house upside down in search of a device that's literally made to ring, this supereasy AirPod hack can help you find your phone in seconds.

In a video shared on Sunday, TikTok user @staniforthlilly explains that all you have to do is put in your AirPods, say, "Hey, Siri, set a timer for 30 seconds," and wait for it to go off. Even if your phone is on silent, the timer will sound once it's up, making it so much easier to find your phone. Definitely keep this tip in mind next time your phone goes MIA!
