Luigi Cappel‘s insight:

Have you got Find My iPad and Find My iPhone running on your device? It’s a really quick set up and its free. The device itself might not mean much to you, but what about those photos and other data you haven’t backed up to cloud?

 

Besides which, the more people use these apps, the more criminals will think twice about taking them  in the first place.

 

If you haven’t done so, set it up now, it only takes a couple of minutes. And even if it doesn’t get stolen, how many times have you put it down  somewhere and can’t remember where?

 

Not sure how to do it? It’s simple, just follow this link http://www.apple.com/nz/icloud/find-my-iphone.html?cid=wwa-nz-kwg-features-com
