I just got my first iPhone last week (full disclosure: Apple sent it to me for a 3-month trial). So far, I love all the apps, but one that really blows me away is the Find iPhone app, which will show you exactly where your iPhone(s) and iPad(s) are. Find iPhone, when engaged, means you’ll never lose your devices again—and if one gets stolen, you’ll be able to remotely lock it, wipe its memory and/or sound an alarm to alert you to where it is.
If you have an Apple product, you might already be very familiar. I was not. When I learned about it, I was in Florida so I wasn’t surprised that my phone was where it said it was: with me in Miami. But I’d forgotten that I’d given my dad my iPad, which was still signed into my Apple account, so when I saw an iPad in Connecticut, I said to myself, “Oh, my dad must have brought the device to my brother’s house.” Then I zoomed in on the map and saw that he was actually at my sister’s, so I called her up and asked her when dad had gotten to her place—all as a result of Find iPhone. She asked how I knew. Now you know!
