Apple has made every effort to make locating a lost iPhone a trivial task . With the Find My iPhone app, available for iOS and via the iCloud website, we can see where any of our devices are based on their GPS position, have it play a sound to find out in which exact room we’ve forgotten it or if it’s slipped through the bloody holes in the sofa, or, if necessary, block it with a message (for example, offering a reward) and even delete it completely.
This last option is the final resource, not just to find it, but to protect our data beyond the peace of mind that iOS gives us since its seventh version that our devices cannot be restored without the iCloud password. It is the ultimate deterrent against thieves and crooks, but what about those of us who still have hope that a certain civility still exists in the world?
Well, this will be a good test to see. If you find a lost iPhone 4S or higher you can ask Siri who owns it . Apple’s personal assistant will provide you with his contact details and you can call him with the terminal itself at any of his other contact numbers to reassure him and return his precious jewel (free advertising wedge designed in California).
