THE BLACK­LIST

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS - By EMMA WHIT­TAKER

The Find My iPhone ap­pli­ca­tion is prov­ing to be a help­ful crime fight­ing tool but it won’t al­ways save the day, po­lice warn.

The ap­pli­ca­tion acts like a GPS sys­tem which means iPhone or iPad own­ers can log in on another de­vice to find out where it is and if it’s lost or stolen.

Sim­i­lar ap­pli­ca­tions are avail­able for other smart­phones.

Craig Ed­wards is one of the tech­nol­ogy’s suc­cess sto­ries.

His part­ner’s car was bro­ken into at One Tree Hill in Jan­uary and among the things stolen was her iPhone.

Cau­tion: Re­ly­ing on the Find My iPhone ap­pli­ca­tion to get your phone back if it’s lost or stolen might not be the safest bet.
