My very outdated MacBook Pro.

Is your iPhone associated with an Apple ID that is associated with your computer?

I think so.
I was on my iPad today when a call came in from a friend and I was able to talk with her through my iPad

Let's try to use the Find My app on your computer to find your phone.

  • Click on the Apple menu on the top left corner of your screen and select System Preferences from the drop-down menu.
  • Click on your name at the top of the sidebar. If your name is not visible, click on "Sign in with your Apple ID" to enter your Apple ID or create one.
  • Click on iCloud.
  • Scroll down and click on Find My Mac.

  2. Enter your Apple ID.
  3. Select the option to reset your password, then choose Continue.
  4. Choose to answer your security questions, get an email, or enter your Recovery Key and follow the onscreen steps to reset your password.
