IPHONES come with a lot of smart features – and some of them work even when your device is running out of battery.
Compared to older models, the lithium-ion batteries in today’s iPhones are impressive, but barely last forever.
Luckily, Apple has thought of that, so even if your iPhone is out of battery, you can still access a few important features.
You can still use Find My
Despite a dead iPhone, you can still access the “Find My” tool to locate your device, even for several hours after its death.
This is also the case if someone steals your iPhone and turns it off.
Also, if you have ‘Activation Lock’ enabled, you can use ‘Find My’ even if someone factory resets your iPhone.
To set it up, go to your iPhone Settings > Your Profile > Find My.
And if you want to be able to find your lost device on a map, you need to make sure location services are turned on.
To do this, go to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and turn it on.
Once you locate your device, you can track it and lock it, wipe it, or report it to the police.
You can still access express card transactions
Another cool feature that you can use on your iPhone whether it’s dead or not is “Express Card Transactions”.
This feature allows your iPhone to give you access to your car keys, home, payment, or transit card.
To set express mode for transit on your iPhone, go to your settings, then Wallet and Apple Pay.
Tap Express Transit Card, select a transit card or other payment card, and authenticate with Face ID, Touch ID, or your password.
To enable or disable Express Mode for a pass or key, open your iPhone, then the Wallet app.
Tap the pass or key, then the More button.
If you can, turn express mode on or off – if you don’t see this option, tap express mode.
And then from the menu: press a pass or key to activate express mode, or press None to deactivate express mode.
Finally, authenticate with Face ID, Touch ID or your password.
