Find iPhone using Apple TV

Find your device with Apple TV

Locating your device with Apple TV is as simple as a Siri command. Hold down the Microphone button on your Siri remote and say, “Find my iPhone.”

Siri will then ping your iPhone with a sound and let you know if it’s nearby and is being pinged.

When you find your iPhone, you’ll see an alert. Tap it and then tap OK to stop the pinging sound.
