Find My iPhone:
If you misplace your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, the Find My iPhone app will let you use any iOS device to find it and protect your data. Simply install this free app, open it, and sign in with the Apple ID you use for iCloud. Find My iPhone will help you locate your missing device on a map, remotely lock it, play a sound, display a message, or erase all the data on it.
For missing iOS devices, Find My iPhone also includes Lost Mode. Lost Mode locks your device with a passcode and can display a custom message and contact phone number right on the Lock Screen. While in Lost Mode, your device can keep track of where it has been and report back so you can view its recent location history, right from the Find My iPhone app.
Please note that Find My iPhone must be enabled in iCloud settings on your device before you can locate it with this app.

How Your Data is Used
When you use Find My iPhone, your device’s location and information about your device and your account will be sent to and retained by Apple. This enables Apple to provide you with this service. Your device location is only sent to Apple if you actively request the location of a device or accessory. If you choose to enable the Send Last Location feature, your device’s last known location will be sent to Apple automatically whenever your device’s battery reaches a critically low level. Apple retains location information and makes it accessible to you for 24 hours. It is then deleted.

Ratings and Reviews
No 5 stars because of 1 tiny fault
I misplaced my iPhone 6plus and on my iPad I tried finding it via maps and it said my phone was 5 mins away from my home !? I knew it was wrong as I've never BEEN where it said my phone is as it's a block of flats and unless somebody's thrown my phone across 1 block of flats , a road, a small park and a huge clump of trees I'm not sure anybody could do that 😑 any who. I then used the sound thing and found it under my bed but a huge fault with Apple they are usually rather good but. Not this time.
DEVELOPERS, READ THIS!!
It seems to work sometimes until I actually need it! Told me my phone was miles away and then I found it under the couch... And now I've lost my phone the location was jumping all over the place and then when it switched off the last location was only available for 24 hours (roughly) Every mugger knows now that if you steal an iPhone you need to turn it off straight away. Maybe apple should allow the app the ability to store 1% off battery and give the app the ability to turn the phone on and locate itself?? Just a thought. If not that then it should at least tell you the last location off it before it was switched off for longer. Even if it just automatically located every hour or so it would still be better than it is now. I want to rate this app good as it seems to work fine when you try it out for yourself but every time I have needed it it has let me down so it's a disappointment!
Also the police don't do anything with this app so unless you are up for turning all vigilante it is useless...
Amazing! Found my iPad
After almost a year since I lost my iPad, I got a notification of its location. (I had tried find my iPhone many time earlier but I guessed the person who stole it couldn’t crack it’s passcode). I immediately locked it and used the GPS to trace it. I was led to a house and the man who had my iPad knew the game was up. Thank goodness he couldn’t crack the passcode for 10 months! He lied that he found it in the bush and ran away after handing it over to me 😂. The iPad was always in my room and I’d never met this man in my life so I’ve not figured out yet how he got it. Anyway thanks to this app, my iPad is safely home after it’s sojourn in strange hands
