Apple Found My Phone

Apple’s Find My Phone service has been around since iOS launched last year. Today, the service found my phone after it bounced out of my jersey pocket on a trial. I noticed it wasn’t in my jersey mid ride and thought I left it on the work bench. When I got home, it wasn’t there, looked around a bit and then checked the map. There it was.

I knew the exact spot.

I had to duck under a thorny vine, throw the bike sideways, back onto the trail and down the hill. I didn’t hear the phone hit the ground, cause it’s soft dirt. Sent a message to the phone, in case someone had found it, or it was worried like me.

I picked it up just as a kid was walking by.

I messed with this feature but was skeptical the GPS would be as spot on as this. Awesome. Glad you got your phone back.

I was impressed too—it was the exact spot.
