iCloud helps find lost iPad
A sales manager was pleasantly surprised by the swift reaction of police officers after he lost his iPad at an airport. He boarded his flight carrying his iPad as he headed for a business meeting. After disembarking he promtly forgot his iPad.
The sales manager recalls the events:
“I used my iPad while I was on the plane. I was going to be late for my meeting and, in the rush of departing the plane, I forgot my iPad in a compartment in front of my seat”.
Discovering the mishap he contacted the airline immediately and reported his loss and see if it had been handed in to lost property.
The sales manager explains what he did next:
“I then decided to log on to my laptop and the iCloud service (which links Apple products with one another), and found that my iPad was still in the vicinity of the airport.”
He reported his findings to airline officials who instructed him to contact the authorities. Using the iCloud the police tracked the device and found the thieves who took it, a driver for an aircraft catering company and a cleaner.
The men were arrested and the iPad recovered.
