Google now helps you find your lost iPhone too

Losing your phone sucks, so last year, Google added the ability to locate your Android device by just typing in ‘Find my phone’ into Search. Now you can do the same on iOS.

It’s also making the tool much more robust.   You can log into Google’s My Account section, from where you can also lock or wipe your phone, leave a message and/or callback number, sign out of your accounts, or contact your carrier.

Google’s also making it easier to access My Account. You can say “Ok Google, show me my Google” account, and soon, you’ll be able to simply search for your name to make the settings pop.
