How to file a claim
- Start your claim online with Apple.
- You'll be asked to finalize your claim on the insurer's website.
You can sign in to icloud.com/find and turn on Lost Mode for your missing iPhone. But don't remotely erase the iPhone or remove it from your account until your claim has been approved.
If you cancel your claim
If you cancel your claim because you found your iPhone, you must set up the iPhone like a new device. You'll be asked to create a new passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID. To get the data previously stored on your iPhone, restore your iPhone from a backup.
You can't cancel the claim if a replacement device has shipped.
