Yesterday, buried amongst updates to a slew of Apple developed apps, was an update to Find My iPhone. Apple has made it really simple to go about tracking a lost device, protecting the data from prying eyes, and communicating with whomever may have found said device. After installing the Find My iPhone app, sign in, and you’ll be presented with a list of all of the devices linked to your iCloud account as well as a map giving you a pretty precise idea of where your devices are. Along with the audible alert, a message appears on the device, notifying whoever finds it that an alert was purposely sent out. Fortunately, you must verify the erase procedure by entering in your iCloud password before proceeding. Finally, let’s talk about the meat and potatoes of the new Find My iPhone — the Lost Mode.
When you first tap the Lost Mode button, you’ll be prompted to lock your device by entering a passcode. Lastly, you’re asked to enter a message that will be shown alongside the phone number. It should be noted, that both the phone number and the message are optional, though it would probably be smart if you used them to your advantage. The nice thing about Lost Mode is that once it’s on, you can always go back and modify the phone number or the message. Overall, I found the new Find My iPhone app to be a good looking, and well performing overhaul to the original version. I highly recommend that everyone who owns an iOS device, or a Mac, enable the Find My Device option in the iCloud settings. Also, will booting into DFU mode will still allow people to make use of stolen devices by wiping the firmware?
I totally agree dude, I got ya or even ilocalis whis is the best applications are more helpful! Being sincere this is useless; normally 90% of the time who ever takes your Iphone,Ipod or Ipad will just shut it down and then do a simple restore and you will certainly loose your device. Hey jeff benjamin is there any tweak that does not allow the user to turn of Iphone or prompts for password to do so it would be quite handy if someone stoled your device and tries to turn it off. Since everyone is using this mode to find theft, but my situation is different, hope anyone can help me.. Hi there, I have just lost my iPhone, the evil person switched off my phone, so I set up the lost mode with passcode lock. One of the features missing in this upgraded version is the ability to type a message when sending the audible sound.


My was iPhone 5 stolen and I located it in an apartment complex…then the battery ran out.
If anyone knows how I can get past the screen in the Lock Mode feature of Find My iPhone, so that it will accept my phone number, I would be greatly appreciative.
I downloaded the app on my iphone, but am very annoyed by the constant prompt to enter Passcode. My brother was recently on my Icloud (how he got on there idk?) But he put my phone into erase mode.
I had my iphone stolen I did everything u said and then everyone of my friends started calling me telling me I was posting nude pics , so my only choice ws to arase my phone. Hello I hope that this is a rather old video but i was wonder if i could use the Lost mode feature on a NON apple phone to location an Apple Ipad? I think with the lost mode, they should design it so that once you go into lost mode and send the email, it should completely lock the phone so that the only thing the person that finds it can do is see your message with phone number. With the update comes a new look and feel, that’s similar to Find My Friends, and a new Lost Mode to help track down lost iCloud-enabled devices. It could be the difference between finding a lost device, or losing it and lacking the means to recover it, even if it lands in honest hands.
This means that Find My iPhone was able to track the device via GPS or Wi-Fi triangulation. The view defaults to standard view, but you can switch to Satellite, or Hybrid, just like you can with Apple Maps. Simply tap the Play Sound button, and the device will make an audible beep in order to help find it under a couch cushion, or what have you. You’ll also receive an email sent to the email address used to create the iCloud account. Tapping erase invokes a popup verifying whether or not you actually want to erase the device.
I’m thankful for this, because I inadvertently tapped erase on my iPhone as I was preparing this article. Lost Mode, enables you to protect, track, and communicate with your device, with the hopes of recovering it in one piece.
After Lost Mode is enabled, you should receive an email message to the email address assigned to your iCloud account. This can be done by simply tapping the Lost Mode button, once your device is already in Lost Mode. The new Lost Mode is simple, and easy to figure out, and most importantly, it’s accurate, and it works.


Since then the app will not open, it just crashes as soon as you launch it on the Springboard. What would be interesting would be to be able to track the device even if it was turned off; that would be amazin! But it DOES now track it’s location even when it lacks an Internet connection, so that it can report it back later via a path on the map in Find My iDevice. This will also stop bad guys from signing out of iCloud or turning off the Find My iDevice feature. Apple designed DFU to aid in getting iOS reloaded back onto iDevices should something go awry for their legitimate owners, so locking down DFU mode isn’t a good solution.
Assuming that whoever picked up the phone will not able to access my phone settings to disabled the pass code, what does “Erased” mean? Find my iphone show it offline its enabled in icloud the location is on i even reset the phone always nothing .find my friends is working perfectvly .
There are many scammers, lots of people might seem to have plenty great feedback, but many people report that their telephone is closed completely following 6 weeks.
There could be many reason for this, perhaps the device has exhausted its battery life, it doesn’t have an Internet connection, or the device was turned off.
From there, you can play a sound to help track the device — this is good if you’ve just misplaced it somewhere around the house. Even if the device is muted, or its volume is turned down, the device will still beep loudly. All of your content and settings will be erased, and of course this means that you can no longer track where the device is. Until then, using this new feature in conjunction with eventually contacting the carrier and getting the IMEI blocked from network use, is currently the most effective way to recover a lost or stolen handset, or reduce its resale value. You must utilize skilled company like att–iphoneunlocking, I have tried it for so many of my phones, they can also unlock the most recent 6 and 6PLUS. The app now represents the cleaner minimalist look that will come in the new flatter design found all over the revamped iOS 7 user interface.
There are some familiar looks inside of the app though, like the wooden design we’ve become accustomed to in earlier builds.
