This question already has an answer here:
We found a new iPhone 8 in a foreigner country, the owner of the phone is also a tourist in that country. The sim card in this phone is a new local sim card that this owner bought at that same day( I know by an sms on the lock screen he received about it).
It’s locked with touch ID.
We really really wanted to find this man, but we couldn’t.
We waited for him to call but we suspect that he doesn’t know his own phone number because it’s a new number he bought probably for data only.
He didn’t use Find my iPhone(i think) or got any message from a friend on the lock screen( because this sim is a new number/data only probably)
Now, i am not sure i can find him or return it to him because we left that city, and soon the country anyway.
I left with a locked new iPhone 8 that i feel guilty to use anyway.
What are my options to give it back? I feel bad to ask - but if I can’t find him- can i use this device? Unlock it and remove all data?
