iOS 15 allows you to find your iPhone even if it is turned off or has been restored

Apple has surprised us with the novelties of iOS 15 presented during WWDC 21. Among them a useful function in the most desperate moment that a user can live with their iPhone. Thus, Apple has announced that iOS 15 will allow you to find the iPhone even if it is turned off or it has been restored.

iOS 15 improves iPhone security measures

With the ‌Find My‌ network, Apple can locate devices even after they have been turned off, a feature that is useful if a lost device is stolen and disabled or if a lost device is low on battery. With iOS 15, the iPhone will never be completely “off”, but instead remains in a low power state and acts as an AirTag, making any nearby iOS device pick up the Bluetooth signal and send its location.

Functionality takes into account various probable situations when losing iPhone. In that sense, a user may have the possibility to find his iPhone, even a few hours after running out of battery. In fact, Apple says that location tracking will continue to work as long as the phone is reset to factory settings with Activation Lock enabled.

By enabling the ability to find a refurbished iPhone, Apple applies an extra security measure to ensure that no one be tricked into buying a stolen device that is still locked on Apple ID. In this case, the greeting screen will clearly show that the iPhone is locked, locatable, and is still owned by someone else.
