The trick to find your iPhone even if it is turned off or out of coverage

It is a new function incorporated with the new Apple operating system: iOS 15

Until now, if you lost or they stole the iPhone, there was still one hope: launch the application Search my Iphone and pray they hadn’t turned it off. However, with the arrival of Apple’s new operating system, everything seems to change: iOS 15 will allow you to control the position of your phone in real time, whether it is on or off.

This was revealed by the company during the keynote inaugural of his WWDC21, an event where those from Cupertino usually advance some of their next novelties. Among them, this one.

Thanks to this new function, it is possible to locate and block the device that is linked to the aforementioned application, even after it has been deleted or turned off. This ensures that, in the event of theft, no one can buy it on the black market and use it.

As the brand has explained, once such an operation has been carried out, a message will appear on the screen that says that the terminal is locked and locatable, as well as that it continues to belong to its original owner. It is certainly trying to deter potential illegal buyers.
