Step 2. Now say 'Where is my iPhone' or 'Where is my iPad'
Step 3. Assuming your iPhone and iPad is connected to the internet in any capacity, Find My will play a loud ring tone on it

Interestingly, if you own an Apple Watch, you can use Siri on it as well to locate your devices. It is a super handy feature and one which you will appreciate when time comes.
It is highly recommended that you enable Find My on all of your devices. In case of theft or the event that you manage to leave it behind somewhere by accident, finding your device will become a breeze. You can even remotely wipe your device if the situation demands it.
