The Find My iPhone app can be helpful if your phone is lost but you need another Apple device to sign in.

For the Alexa method to work, you need to make sure your iPhone and your Amazon Echo devices are connected.

The Alexa method is based on a voice command: “Alexa, find my phone.”

When you activate the Alexa method, you will receive a call.

For this to work, your phone needs to have its volume turned up or vibration turned on.

But then when you find your iPhone, don’t answer it.

Depending on your mobile provider, fees may apply.

But on the other hand, some Alexa commands can save you money.

Ahead of Amazon’s upcoming Prime Day, you can check Alexa for the best deals.

Use the voice command: “Alexa, what are my deals for today?” or “Alexa, what are the best Prime Day deals?”

You can also receive notifications from Alexa about specific discounts up to 24 hours in advance.

Alexa can also notify you about sales of items in your shopping cart, wish list, or products you have saved.

Additionally, you can receive voice reminders to pay your bills so you don’t incur late fees.

Use the command: “Alexa, remind me to pay rent at 12 p.m. on the first of the month.”
