New Find My iPhoneApple's excellent and free Find my iPhone App (kind of a misnomer, since the app may be used to find any Apple device you've registered, including an iMac), has just been updated with new features. Driving directions to your lost device may now be obtained via Apple Maps' spoken-street-name, turn-by-turn directions. Apple has also improved the layout of the app to display buttons for play sound, lost mode, and erase buttons separately from map view. Losing an Apple device is awful, but the Find My iPhone app gives you power over the situation, with the ability to locate your device on a map, display a custom message on the screen, play a sound at full volume (even if the device is set to silent - great for a lost device in the house), and remotely wipe your device. Be sure to activate it on your iDevices. Image Apple
