"Find My iPhone" Update Includes New "Send Last Location" Feature

Apple continues to refine the user experience with each iteration of iOS, making it increasingly easier to recover a misplaced iPhone or iPad.

The journey began with the debut of “Find My iPhone” back in 2010, which was further bolstered by the introduction of “Activation Lock” with iOS 7, and the integration of TouchID, adding layers of security.

"Find My iPhone" Update Includes New "Send Last Location" Feature

In its latest update, iOS 8, Apple introduced a new feature within the “Find My iPhone” settings called “Send Last Location.” This feature, when activated, automatically sends the device’s last known location to Apple right before the battery dies.

This clever enhancement addresses the common problem of trying to locate an iPhone that has run out of battery power.
