What happened: It’s painfully common to leave your iPhone in one place and forget where you put it. If you ask your friends or family members to call you on your iPhone, you can find out where the device is.

Earlier this year, in March, a youtube named channel Patrick Rambleswith 93,100 subscribers, shared a brilliant Apple Watch trick to help iPhone owners find their device even when it’s in silent or do not disturb mode.
To do this, users just need to do the following things:
Step I: Swipe up from the bottom of your Apple Watch face to reveal the watchOS Control Center.
Step II: Now tap on the iPhone icon with small rings.
The second step will ping your iPhone – play a sound – so you can find it quickly and easily.
