Simple ways on how to track an iPhone
“You need to look no further than Apple's iPhone to see how fast brilliantly written software presented on a beautifully designed device with a spectacular user interface will throw all the accepted notions about pricing, billing platforms and brand loyalty right out the window.” - Edgar Bronfman, Jr.

There is no doubt that the Apple iPhone is one of the most advanced technological devices that are available on the market today. Not only is it a telecommunication device, but also acts as a micro-computer. Ergo, you can run your entire business on your phone without any other computing devices such as a desktop computer or a laptop. 

Unfortunately, as an iPhone is a relatively small device, so it is easy to lose or unintentionally leave lying around. Therefore, the question that begs is what will happen to all of your proprietary business data if you lose your phone or it is stolen?

Ways to track an iPhone 

The simple answer to the question asked above is that you find out how to track an iPhone (before the time) and you track it. What you do when you find it, depends on where it is and the circumstances surrounding its disappearance. However, before we look at what to do with the sensitive data on your phone, let’s look at some of the ways you can track your phone: 

Install a third-party app that links to an online management console

Probably the best, and most successful way, to track your iPhone is to install a phone tracking app such as mSpy on the device as soon as you take delivery of it. Once this app has been configured correctly and linked to the accompanying online dashboard or management console, you will be able to utilise mSpy’s functionality to not only track your phone; you can also delete all of the information on the phone if you are not able to recover the phone. 

Use Apple’s iCloud to track your phone

If you have an iCloud account, and you have activated the “Find my iPhone” cloud-based service, you can log into your iCloud account and navigate to the “Find my iPhone” icon on your iCloud dashboard. The next step is to select your missing device and to start tracking it. If the tracking of your phone is successful, you should see its location on a map on the iCloud dashboard. Unfortunately, this method will not work if your phone is switched off, or the mobile data and WiFi are turned off. You will have to wait until the person who has it switches it on and comes online. 

Use Google’s timeline to track your phone 

Google’s timeline feature collects location-specific data from your iPhone and allows you to view it on a Google map of the area where the phone has been located. Using this method, you can find your phone’s last reported location. By plotting the phone’s last known movements, you should be able to work out where your phone is. It is important to note; however, that this method does not work if the location reporting and location history features are not enabled on your iPhone.
