iCloud: Play a sound on your device

  1. Sign in to with your Apple ID (the one you use with iCloud).

    If you’re using another iCloud app, click the app’s name at the top of the window, then click Find My iPhone.

    If you don’t see Find My iPhone on, your account just has access to iCloud web-only features. To gain access to other iCloud features, set up iCloud on your iOS device or Mac.

  2. Click All Devices, then select the device on which you want to play a sound.

    If you have Family Sharing set up, your family members’ devices appear below their names.

  3. In the device’s Info window, click Play Sound.

    Play Sound button in the device's Info window

    If the device is online, the sound plays immediately (for two minutes). If it’s offline, the sound plays the next time it’s online.

After the sound plays, a confirmation email is sent to your Apple ID email address.
