Find My Apple Device

Find My iPhone (or iPod or iPad or Mac) is baked into iOS / OSX. It’s a great way to locate your device if you’ve misplaced it or if it get’s stolen. In this post I will show you how to turn it ON.

Settings > Privacy

Location Services

Make sure Location Services is ON. You can turn off location services access per app but make sure Location Services itself is ON

Scroll to the very bottom of the list and make sure Find my iPhone is ON as well

Go back to Settings this time select iCloud

In iOS 7, Find My iPhone is beefed up and hopefully makes it harder for thieves to erase and sell your device.

Find my iPhone works via Location Services (GPS) for the location and Internet (Cellular data or WiFi) for the commands sent to the device it’d be a good idea to have both on.

You CANNOT locate your iPhone if Location Services are OFF.

With the Find My iPhone App or using iCloud.com (on a desktop browser)

You can locate, lock, erase your device/s.

IT WILL NOT WORK IF THE DEVICE IS OFF

IT WILL NOT WORK IF LOCATION SERVICES ARE OFF.

IT WILL NOT WORK IF THE DEVICE IS NOT CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET.

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

VGA:

tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
--
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
