Find My iPhone for iOS 8 Adds ‘Send Last Location’ Option

Posted by at 11:16 am on June 5, 2014

The iOS 8 incarnation of Find My iPhone includes a new “Send Last Location” option,.. A description explains that toggling it on will send the last location of a device to Apple once the battery drains “to a critical level.” It’s not known how this information will be shared with device owners, or how long it will persist. Find My iPhone currently holds a device’s last-recorded location for 24 hours. By allowing iOS to force an update immediately before a device powers off, Apple is presumably hoping to maximize that time. It may help in retrieving a lost or stolen product, although in the latter case it may be possible to restore iOS and break Activation Lock before Apple can get an accurate location. iOS8 Find My iPhone
