iPhone fans go wild for mind-blowing hack to locate handset that’s switched off

i

TRACKING on the iPhone is great if your device is lost or stolen – but many people don’t realise it still works even when switched off.

A TikToker has gone viral after revealing her shocking iPhone retrieval which meant she was able to get her handset back from thieves.

“You need to do this iPhone hack in case your phone gets stolen because mine did last night and I got it back,” Katrina Audrey explained.

“This allows your phone, even when it’s off or on Airplane mode to still be findable,” Katrina said.

For it to work, you’ll need to switch on some settings before such an incident happens.

Of course, if your iPhone has already been stolen and you’re only just looking at this now, it’s too late.

To switch it on, you need to open the Settings and go to Face ID and Passcode.

From here, toggle off Control Center and USB accessories.

After that, go back to Settings and find Privacy, then toggle on Location Services.

Finally, go back to Settings one more time, then head to Find My iPhone.

Switch on all three features listed there.

Of course, if you do manage to locate your iPhone, you really ought to get the police involved rather than dealing with things on your own.

A man who had his motorbike stolen recently revealed how he was able to track it down another way, using Apple’s AirTags.
