Is there a "Siri where are you?" command to find your phone when you dropped it?

    I love my iPhone 6S Plus but it's so thin that when I don't have a case on it, it falls through cracks in the couch or into spaces that are difficult to reach. I'm constantly losing my phone because it'll fall off my lap and into some small space. Then I can't find my phone. Is there a "Siri where are you?" command or something to get it to play a dinging sound like lost mode in the find my iPhone app? That ALWAYS works but it's annoying to get another device and login to that app every time I can't find my phone.

    No, but you can log in to icloud.com and play a sound.
    That's what I do and I locate it by the beeps within seconds.
    If it fell in between a couch, pillows or other things siri/speaker will not be able to hear you depending how far you are and how loud you can scream for example for your kind of suggestion.
    Or if you left it in the car or another room for example.

    How about calling out "Hey Siri set an alarm" for minute from now if perhaps lost nearby?

    Most straightforward way is to call it from another phone/landline.

    I would imagine that if you are close enough to ask Siri it's location, you could simply walk around asking Siri questions and try to listen for the prompt. Otherwise, I'm not sure if there is another way.

    If you have "Hey, Siri" turned on, just ask "Hey, Siri, Where are you?" in a loud voice. Assuming the phone can hear you, you'll get a response of something like "I'm right here." I need to do this more often then I'd like to admit. ;)

    Applejuiced's suggestion of using "Find my iPhone" in icloud to play a beep would be a good step 2, since the beeping goes on for quite some time.

    Most expensive way is to buy an Apple Watch. You'll then be able to ping it.

    Not expensive enough. I would suggest logging onto icloud.com from a brand new MacBook Pro and playing a sound on the phone.

    Or if that is too cheap for you, just constantly keep buying new iPhones and don't even bother looking for the old one.

    Or even more expensive buy a yacht and keep your brand new macbook there. When you need to ping the lost iphone hop on your private jet, fly to your Yacht and from there ping with find my iphone and then take a ride back home via private Chopper :D
