Search

We all know today that stealing an iPhone only serves to sell it in pieces or have a nice paperweight. If we find an iPhone, it’s easier and more rewarding to give it back to its rightful owner than it is to try and sell it second-hand for a few bucks. The search app in iOS 15 has also received major changes and in this case, they will help us detect fraud in sales of stolen iPhones or attempts to prevent them from locating the device even if they are turned off.

And it is that in the presentation of yesterday and thanks to the network “Search” Apple says it can locate devices even after they’ve been turned off. This function is completely new and interesting for users, it was not available in the previous version of iOS.

In the event that our device is lost, stolen or lost, we can locate it using this function. It is not clear how this novelty works in the system, but it is likely to show the last known location where our device was known to be

and is updated randomly from time to time.

This new version also shows a good harmony between search and activation lock, a function that can locate a lost device even after it has been erased, therefore, thieves will not be able to erase the device to turn off iPhone tracking.

Device lock notification on the home screen

This is undoubtedly for me one of the key functions of this new version of research under iOS 15. It is a novelty that you will avoid getting caught by thieves who want to sell the locked device using Apple ID

.

Is this apple now Add on the home screen of our lost or stolen iPhone that it is locked, that it can be located and that its owner is looking for it. All this in order to prevent this device from being sold illegally. We find this novelty in research really interesting because scams and attempts to sell found or stolen devices will be avoided more.
