Theft and loss coverage requires you to have Find My iPhone enabled on your device at the time it is lost or stolen.
AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss is available for purchase only for iPhone in the United States and Japan.
How to file a claim for a lost or stolen iPhone
You can file a claim online. To sign in, you need a trusted device or trusted phone number, and two-factor authentication must be turned on for your Apple ID. If your previous iPhone was your only trusted device, you'll need another trusted phone number.
About the claims process
During the claim process, you'll be asked to erase your missing device, disable it, and transfer ownership. Find My iPhone should remain enabled and your iPhone should remain associated with your Apple ID throughout the claim process. Your iPhone will be unusable and no one will be able to access any data stored on it. You'll receive an email from Apple which says that your iPhone is being erased.
If you had Apple Pay set up on your iPhone, your cards will be removed.
If you cancel your claim
If you cancel your claim, your iPhone will be usable again, but you must set it up like a new device, including a new passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID. To get the data previously stored on your iPhone, restore your iPhone from a backup.
When your claim is approved
When your claim is approved, your lost or stolen iPhone will be permanently disabled and you'll receive a replacement. If you find your lost or stolen iPhone after your claim has been approved, you won't be able to use it again.
In Japan, you might need to bring your replacement iPhone to your carrier to get and register a new SIM card.

Before you check the status of your claim, make sure that you have these things on hand:
