Tip: How to Find backup the stolen iPhone?

When you discover that your iPhone has been stolen, there are some steps you should take that may help you to get back your stolen iPhone.

1) Track the iPhone with Find My iPhone App

“Find My iPhone” is an official application made by Apple that can be used to track and lock the stolen iPhone, as well as remove all data on it. Once your iPhone was stolen, all you need to do is to use another iOS device and log in this application with your Apple ID to find the current location of your iPhone.

2) Call Your Phone Company

Calling your cell phone company to report the theft and have the account tied to the iPhone suspended or canceled will help ensure that you’re not stuck paying for charges incurred by the thief.

3) Get Police Help

No matter it might get your iPhone back or not, this is always an important step. You can provide the iPhone’s current location that you get from the “Find My iPhone” to the police officers. This will greatly increase the possibility to get back your stolen iPhone.

If you really find your iPhone 6S again, I suggest you to backup iPhone 6S to Mac with Wondershare Dr.fone for iOS in case you can’t find the data one day.
