Owners of the Apple Watch can easily find their misplaced iPhone by tapping a dedicated icon on the Settings glance, which will cause the connected iPhone to emit a high pitched sound. I’ve been using this trick since the Apple Watch came out to locate my iPhone, which shows an unnerving tendency to disappear under a pile of laundry or slide sneakily between the couch cushions.
Have iPhone’s LED flash blink when pinging it from Apple Watch
1) Swipe up on your watch face to bring up your glances and then swipe your way to Apple’s built-in Settings glance, which cannot be removed.
2) Tap and hold the Ping icon on the Settings glance.
This will cause an iPhone’s LED flash to illuminate a few times.
Not only shall you hear the ping, but also see where your misplaced phone is. This is tremendously useful when attempting to locate a misplaced device in pitch dark conditions, even if your iPhone is face-up.
Tapping the icon without holding it produces standard pinging sound, without having your iPhone’s LED flash blink a few times.
