Apple has updated Find My iPhone to provide driving directions to your lost device.

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 (iOS 6 or later)
• Driving directions to device location (iOS 6 or later)
• Battery charge indicator

What's New In This Version:
• Driving directions to device location (iOS 6 or later)

• Play Sound, Lost Mode, and Erase buttons appear separately from map view

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

For this purpose there is better apps like that allows you to locate the device and a lot of more features.

No matter what, Apple maps is a total fail of an app. Can't wait till google drops its app again. Apple gives me the worse directions, where the short cuts. Gas aint cheap!

If you want the latest news, try the New York Times. If you want the best information about Apple, you come here. It's that simple. Some of us don't wait around, timing the split second release of information. As long as we get reliable information, we're happy.

Huhh... You would think that somebody with an Audi would have to work to pay that car note. I guess I should become a rumor site troll, seems like good pay. Maybe you should go to MacRumors or something? Or... Get a life? If you hate the site, GTFO and don't come back

Submit your complaints via email not in the comments section. Then maybe you'll get a some feedback. And some change may occur. This is the comments section. Made for this article, not your entertainment.
