Find misplaced devices with Apple Watch

The Find Devices app on Apple Watch can help you locate Apple devices you’ve lost or misplaced. To find your Apple devices you must connect them to your Apple ID.

Open the Find Devices app on your Apple Watch, then tap a device.

  • If the device can be located: It appears on the map so you can see where it is. The device’s approximate distance, time it last connected to Wi-Fi or cellular, and charge level appears above the map. An approximate location appears below the map.
  • If the device can’t be located: You see “No location” under the device’s name. Under Notifications, turn on Notify When Found. You receive a notification once it’s located.

  2. Tap Play Sound.
  • If the device is online: A sound starts after a short delay and gradually increases in volume, then plays for about two minutes. The device vibrates (if applicable). A Find My [device] alert appears on the device’s screen. A confirmation email is also sent to your Apple ID email address.
  • If the device is offline: You see Sound Pending. The sound plays the next time the device connects to a Wi-Fi or cellular network.
