How to Set Up Notify When Left Behind on Your iPhone or iPad
If you’re someone who frequently misplaces their iPhone or iPad, then the “Notify When Left Behind” feature is the one for you. With this setting enabled, your device will notify you when you leave it behind somewhere.
Here’s how you can set up this handy feature on your iPhone or iPad:
Step 1: Open your Settings app.
Step 2: Tap on your Apple ID at the top of the screen.
Step 3: Scroll down and select the “Find My” option.
Step 4: Toggle on the “Find My” switch if it’s not already enabled.
Step 5: Scroll down and select the “Notify When Left Behind” option.
Step 6: Toggle on the “Notify When Left Behind” switch.
Step 7: Choose the device you want to receive notifications for.
Step 8: Tap on “Done” to save your settings.
That’s it! Once you’ve completed these steps, your device will alert you whenever it’s left behind.
One thing to note is that this feature is only available on devices running iOS 15 or later. So if you’re using an older version of iOS, you’ll need to update your device to take advantage of this feature.
Another thing to keep in mind is that this feature uses location services to work. So if you’ve disabled location services for the Find My app, you’ll need to enable it again to use “Notify When Left Behind”.
Overall, “Notify When Left Behind” is a great feature that can save you time and hassle if you’re someone who frequently forgets their device. Give it a try and let us know how it works for you!
