iPhone Tip: Find My iPhone Will Make Sound Even If Ringer Switch Is On Mute

Have you ever “lost” your iPhone in between the couch cushions or in the tangle of sheets on your bed? Then you should know that Find My iPhone can help you find it by forcing your iPhone to emit a beeping sound, allowing you to track down your iPhone in your home.

But what if you’re like me and keep the iPhone’s ringer switch on mute most of the time? No worries, Find My iPhone will still force your iPhone to make a beeping noise, even with the ringer switch on mute.

Want to know what other sounds the ringer switch doesn’t mute. Check out my article titled What Does the iPhone Ringer Switch Mute (And Not Mute)?

    Hi,
    how exactly the phone rings if the mute is on? I can’t find anyway to do that. I mean, I want to keep the key note muted, go through apps , pics etc… in a silent way and the telephone vibrate when someone calls, but it happens that I let it mute somewhere and I don’t hear the calls anymore, so how can I use this find my Iphone? I set it on but is not ringing when muted, only vibrating.
    thanks

      Did you even read the article? If you have the find my iPhone feature turned on on your phone it will make the noise even if your phone is on mute? If you never turned the feature on then you are SOL.

      Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 3
