iPhone users, did you always think that it is impossible to locate your iPhone device when it is turned off? So it’s not. A new feature called “iPhone Findable After Power Off” or in free translation into Hebrew “it will be possible to locate the iPhone after shutdown” will allow you to locate your iPhone device even when it is turned off.
How does It work?
Starting with iOS 15, you can find some iPhone models (like iPhone 13 for example) remotely even when they are off, thanks to the “Find My network” and “Find my …” features. My).
Another thing that helps to locate the iPhone remotely is that in these models, the iPhone continues to provide a small amount of power to the Bluetooth, UWB (ultra-wideband and NFC ) components, even when it is off. All of these make it possible to locate the iPhone easily, even when The device is switched off and the battery is drained.
So if while you were shutting down your iPhone you noticed the following message on the screen – “It will be possible to locate the iPhone after shutting down”, you will know that you have the option to locate your iPhone even when it is off.
How to use it
There is no need to enable this feature in the device settings because it is already enabled by default. Want to see what he looks like? Reach the power off screen on your iPhone (pressing the power button in combination with the side button or volume up button, depending on the model of your device). Now, under the option “You have to swipe to turn off” the new feature will appear – “It will be possible to locate the iPhone after the shutdown” .
If you click on “It will be possible to locate the iPhone after the shutdown” a window will pop up where you can temporarily turn off the detection option by clicking on “Temporarily shut down the detection”. The power off option will be valid until the next device is turned off.
If you want to completely turn off the option to find the iPhone when it is off, later in the guide we will explain how to turn off this option so that the iPhone will not turn it on automatically when it is turned off.
