With the Find My network, Apple says users can locate devices even if they have been shut off – a feature that is particularly helpful is a lost device has a low battery or if a missing device is stolen and turned off.
Currently, what we know about this feature is that it allows the Find My network to function even if Internet connectivity is not available as it will rely on Apple’s network of millions of devices, which use Bluetooth to share device locations with each other, while completely maintaining data privacy and security. Here are all the iPhone models that support the feature:

Apple is also launching another new Find My feature in iOS 15 that will make ping users if they leave behind an Apple device or third-party tracking accessory on accident. Separation Alerts will ping users if they leave the vicinity of a device like an AirTag or third-party devices that support Apple’s Find My network.
