Tip of the month
It’s a small setting that can make a big difference in the event of your iPad being stolen, and for several people, has not only led to their device being recovered, but tech-stupid thieves being nabbed.
The key lies in ensuring that location services is always on, with this innocuous tab found under ‘Settings’. Thus, missing iPads can be tracked and traced on a map using iOS’s ‘Find my iPad’ feature. Under the same tab you can also select, or deselect, which apps can take advantage of location based services.
