Apple’s FaceTime is the feature that made video calling popular, despite that this ability has been present on phones since the early days of Nokia’s ascent to power. Video chatting with friends is now as much a part of popular culture thanks to it as is snapping selfies and posting them on, say, Instagram with your favorite filter.
If you’re iPhone was stolen from you, here’s what you need to do in order to keep your information safe and maybe get your device back.
Millions of phones get lost or stolen constantly, and usually there’s not much you can do about it other than to try and go back and find it. If it’s stolen, you’re kind of out of luck, unless you can find a way to somehow locate it and get it back from the perpetrator. Luckily, phone manufacturers are adding ways for owners to track and manage their phones if they ever do get lost or stolen, giving users a fighting chance at least.
There are a handful of things that you’ll need to keep in mind and make sure that you do whenever your iPhone does end up stolen. Many users simply resort to tracking their stolen device using Find My iPhone, but don’t spend too much time trying to track down the device and the criminal, as there are other tasks that you need to do if you’re iPhone gets stolen.
