Tính Năng Hay Của iOS 4.2: Tìm iPhone / iPad /iPod Touch Khi Thất Lạc

image Một trong những tính năng đáng chú ý đi kèm với hệ điều hành iOS 4.2 của Apple là "Tìm-iPhone " để giúp bạn tìm iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch khi bị thất lạc. Tính năng nầy có từ trước nhưng phải trả 99 USD cho một năm trong chương trình MobileMe. Với iOS 4.2, nó trở thành miễn phí. Mặc dầu tính năng nầy có tên iPhone, nhưng nó cũng áp dụng cho iPad và iPod Touch. Nên nhớ tính năng chỉ hổ trợ máy đời mới nhất mà thôi.

One of the notable features that came with the Apple iOS 4.2 is the “Find-My-iPhone” to help you find your missing iDevices. The features existed before under the paid subscription of MobileMe but it has become free with iOS 4.2. The name indicates iPhone since the feature was initially designed for it, but with the addition of the iPad,  you can find Apple refers the feature as “Find-My-iPad” on the site and a required app has 2 separate versions with the same name ““Find-My-iPhone” . Confused enough?

Apple seems to push to their new iPhone 4 and the iPod Touch sale, unless you have the latest, the earlier versions are not supported. 

Below we mention the iPad set-up but the iPhone and iPod set-up should be similar.

To activate the feature, you need to follow the below process from your iPad:

  1. Download your version of “Find-My-iPhone” in the app store
  2. Go to Settings, Mail, Calendar, Contact, add new account
  3. Select MobileMe and enter your Apple ID & Password
  4. Click on the agreed bottom for the new ULA (after you read it entirely, right?)
  5. You should see the enable slider button to activate “Find-My-iPhone” (be patient, I had to try several times to see this enable button appeared)
  6. Launch your “Find-My-iPhone” app on your device and sign in with your Apple ID

Go to a browser on another computer and go to http://me.com, enter your credentials, you will see the map with location of your device. 


From there you can remotely send a message to your iPad (asking people to call you back), MobileMe sends you a delivery confirmation; lock it to protect its contents until it’s safely back in your hands with a four-digit passcode to prevent people from using your iPad, accessing your personal information, or tampering with your settings and ultimately you can remotely wipe your personal data on the device. If you eventually recover your iPad, just connect it to your computer and use iTunes to restore the data from your most recent backup.backup.
