Just Before Running Out Of Battery, your iPhone will automatically send a GPS marker

Everyone knows about the tweaks to the UI and the general functionality in the iOS 8 but we somewhat didn’t pay attention to what Apple did for improving the security features of the software. We understand why most of the features of the iOS 8 are pouring in now because the announcement was just made a few days back at the WWDC. This is not such a happy news for all the thieves who are planning to steal iPhones; the Cupertino outfit plans to make it even easier to track a lost, stolen or otherwise missing devices with iOS 8.

We are talking about the Find My iPhone feature which is literally a livesaver in all situations where you leave your phone at some coffee shop or behind a cushion on the sofa. icloud might seem like the only solution available but you have nowhere to go if your phone’s battery runs out and it switches off. The new app ensures that just before your phone is fighting for that last bit of battery juice, its location is sent to to Apple, and remains on the servers for 24 hours. With the automatic GPS marker sent from you device, you can now simple log on to iCloud and locate its last known position.
