Released by Apple on September 19, 2019, Find My is an app for locating missing devices and keeping track of friends and family members. The app can locate iPhones, iPads, Mac computers, Apple Watches, and AirPods connected to the same iCloud account. Locations of your devices appear on a map. You can make the device ring or secure the device with a passcode, so your data is protected. Find My can also be used to share the location of your device with other users of the app.

The Find My app replaced the Find My iPhone and Find My Friends services which were previously supported on Apple devices. These apps were removed after the introduction of Find My in the iOS 13 update released in 2019. All the functions of these apps can be performed in the Find My app, included by default on all current Apple products.
