    unbelievably she can't find her ipads. a mini and an air. she never takes it out of the apartment. is there a way to track them?

    she never turns them off. my friend tried facetime her but we heard nothing. tried to email her to. waited for the ding ding. nothing

    anyone have any other suggestions? she's frantic. she's more frantic than if something happened to ME.

    You could try Lost Mode to find her iPads. I don't know how accurate it will show the location, but it's worth a try:

    Lost Mode also allows to play sound to find them.

    My wife misplaces her iPad Mini & iPhone in the house often - she uses the 'Find iPhone' app on one of the devices to find the other - the last time her iPhone was in her purse which she lost in the house - using the app on the Mini 'rang' her purse! :D

    If she misplaces both, then entering iCloud on her iMac can be used - now, as for me, I never misplace my devices - ;) Dave

    If you don't have Find My iPhone/iPad turned on, you could try giving the device a FaceTime call.

    haha...i tried to start her from the beguinning and came to the conclusion that there was no way she could lose TWO ipads unless she was holding both and did something unusual. concluded that she packed both in a box and forgot.......that's what happened alright - smh :)

    man, she was hyperventilating. alls well now
