Theft Of iOS Devices Is Getting Harder

The implementation of iOS7 on iPads and iPhones has resulted in less devices being stolen.
iPhone 5S and 5C has resulted in Apple IDs being locked to the owner , which means that if your device is stolen , even if the device is wiped the first thing that will appear on the screen is a request for the old owners Apple ID and password.
In iCloud users should activate “Find my iPhone” , which enables remote tracking of devices through logging onto their Apple ID through iCloud.com and can:

  • See where their device is
  • Remote wipe that device
  • Display a message on that device
  • Make it ring when it is silent

Your iPad / will see the printer if connected properly to the wifi network and if it is not too old
