Never lose again: iPhone tracking reaches a new level
IPhone tracking should also be possible under iOS15 when your device is actually switched off. We’ll tell you how it works.
As part of the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) 2021, Apple presented some not insignificant innovations. The new iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 operating systems were also involved iPhone-Tracking with himself.
iPhone Tracking: iOS 15 Makes It More Effective
It seems that the iPhone isn’t actually completely “off” in iOS 15, even if you think so – it’ll use a mode similar to AirTag that keeps it in a low-power state after it’s turned off. Every iOS device in the vicinity can receive a Bluetooth signal and send its location back to Apple’s server. iPhone tracking works with it even when the device is switched off.
That means you still have a chance to find your iPhone’s location if you run out of power during the day. IT Home learned that Apple also says that location will continue to work if you factory reset your phone with Activation Lock on.
If your iPhone with iOS 15 starts to consume little power, Apple will alert the user to this behavior with a warning. It is worth noting that if you want your iPhone to actually or completely shut down, you can change the “Find” configuration in the settings and deactivate the energy-saving mode completely.
