The Find My iPhone app has been updated with a new Lost Mode, Battery Charge Indicator, and Forever Login.

If you misplace your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac, the Find My iPhone app will let you use another iOS device to find it and protect your data. Simply install this free app on another iOS device, open it, and sign in with your Apple ID. Find My iPhone will help you locate your missing device on a map, play a sound, display a message, remotely lock your device, or erase all the data on it.

If the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch you want to locate is running iOS 6, Find My iPhone also includes Lost Mode. Lost Mode locks your missing device with a 4-digit passcode and can display a contact phone number right on the lock screen. And while in Lost Mode, your device will keep track of where it has been and display its recent location history when you check in with the Find My iPhone app.

Please note that Find My iPhone must be enabled in the iCloud settings on your device for you to locate it with this app.


• Locate your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac on a map

• Display a custom message on the screen

• Play a sound for two minutes at full volume (even if your device is set to silent)

• Remotely lock your device

• Remotely wipe your device to erase your personal data
• Lost Mode (for devices running iOS 6 or later)

What's New In This Version:
• Lost Mode (available on devices running iOS 6 or later)
• Battery Charge indicator
• Forever login (On iOS 6, if the account used to log in is the same as the iCloud account configured on the device and the device has passcode enabled on it.)

You can download Find My iPhone from the App Store for free.

I like to watch movies and play games with iPad, but the battery can’t last long, it’s not convenient, especially when I go out. I would like to buy a portable charger to keep mine alive. I know a brand named Kinkoo, and I bought it from: I have found it to be great, with real 8,000mAh and fast charging speed, can charge iPad for 1 time, with juice still to spare. Haha, I think it’s worth to own one.

As I type this, having trawled the internet all night trying to find out what will happen if I put my iPhone in lost mode, whether it will need to be unlocked by Apple, or whether I can just deal with it myself, an advert for Blackberry popped up on the left here. Ah, the good old days. After three Blackberrys, I chose iPhone. I am counting the hours till the end of my contract.
