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.
Taking a look back at another week of news from Cupertino, this week’s Apple Loop covers the iOS 8.3 and iOS 9 updates, TouchID improvements, Tim Cook on privacy and cybersecurity, Apple’s rewarding strategy for Q2 2015, the Apple iCar, bigger iOS apps, the iPhone kill switch is working, and ‘Pay Once and Play’.
Apple Loop is here to remind you of a few of the very many discussions that have happened around Apple over the last seven days (and you can read our weekly digest of Android news here on Forbes).
Apple’s new iOS 8.3 update is grabbing all of the headlines but it probably won’t be the company’s next upgrade for iOS 8 users. No, that honor will likely fall to the iOS 8.2 update that currently sits in the company’s beta program. With an iOS 8.2 release rumored to be just a few weeks away, we want to take a look at what we expect from the update itself and from its release.
In September, Apple released its iOS 8.0 update for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The update, which followed the company’s iOS 7 update, delivered a number of new features, fixes and enhancements. It also delivered a series of iOS 8 problems, problems that Apple’s been trying to fix in the weeks after the operating system’s initial release.
