Find My iPhone
Does it work ? Yes it does !
Here’s the reality.
My friend Patrick recently left his iPhone in a laundrette and after a few minutes realised and went back. Of course it wasn’t there was it – people like to take things that don’t belong to them for some reason rather than handing it in. He called me to see if there was any way of finding it. He didn’t know about Find My iPhone. A feature that let’s you track you phone if lost, stolen or mis-placed. So I told him to get another device and log into Find my iPhone. He got his partners iPad with a mobile sim in it – logged in and was able to track it I under an hour to Hull city centre, he then called the phone repeatedly by asking a local mobile phone shop in the vicinity to help him. His iPhone kept ringing in a lady’s bag and after walking uptown her and asking her for it. She duly handed it over. In less than 2 hours from losing it he’d got it back. So it’s now time to read the rest of our article and understand how useful it is and how it can help you.
In fact rather than ringing the phone the app actually allow you to make the lost phone emit a tone, and useful if you’ve lost it in your house or somewhere similar.
