Who comes up with terrible changes?
Why have you CHANGED Find My iPhone to log in every time? To many of your Apple changes occur because someone who has job has nothing better to do to justify their job except things that already work great and the people have not requested to be changed. When I buy a bicycle, the seller has NO RIGHT TO COME TO MY HOUSE AND CHANGE MY DA*N SEAT OR ANY PART OF MY BIKE. I bought my product because of how Find My Phone worked and you feel you have the right to change what I bought without allowing me to use the versions I paid for. Apple is infuriating. Your upgrades are geared at rendering older devices and Software that worked just find so painfully slow or inoperable, that you force us to buy up. You think we’re stupid? You people think you can just do what ever you want and it makes me hate your company since Jobs departed. Do you think I’m buying the new iPhone6 because you’ve rendered my 4S slow and changed your apps without my da*n permission, you’re high. You wrecked the first version of iMovie to force people to buy Final Cut and many other things to force people to buy up again- to rebuy a product we already bought. Software that we buy is ours and somehow, you have the legal right to come to MY phone and change MY purchased product. Disgusting.
My find my iPhone story
I lost my iPhone on New Years Eve at a friends party. Thanks to the Find my IPhone app I located my phone today 1/6/15 at some strangers house. I knocked on their door and when they opened it I hit the play sound icon and heard it ringing in their house. The woman let me in but didn't want to let me leave with MY phone lol.. She said if the guy who's room it was in (who wasn't home) paid for it on the street someone owes him money!!! lol I was like is she for real???? But then again she was renting rooms illegally so yeah she would be worried about street money. I told her I bought my phone with my legitimate, hard earned legal money and I'm taking MY phone! She's lucky I didn't call the INS...anyhow I did call the local police before going but they didn't think I needed an escort but they did arrive when the woman didn't want me to take my phone but she talked to the guy who's room it was in via telephone and when he heard the cops were there he said he found it. The end result was I got my iPhone. Thank you Apple 😊
Entire Hard drive erased!
For a long time, I thought Find my iPhone (and its accompanying Find My Mac) were great. If my phone or computer were ever stolen/lost, voila! I could find them again! Let me preface this by saying my problem is with Find my Mac, NOT Find my iPhone.
So I was on the app, and my Mac wasn’t appearing. I was trying to take precautions and make sure the app worked, so I wanted to remove my Mac from the app and then readd and see if then it would work. And while this is partially my fault, I think it is also the application’s. I selected “Erase my Mac”, thinking this would just remove my Mac from the app. But NO. IT ERASED MY ENTIRE HARD DRIVE because the app thought my Mac had been lost/stolen. ARE YOU KIDDING ME. There was absolutely NO warning that the app was going to do this, no “are you sure you want to perform this procedure”? Which resulted in me having to find a data recovery place (which, by the way, the place the Apple Store referred me to and the only place they work with, Drivesavers, had quotes of $700-$9000 effing dollars! Thanks a lot Apple!) I eventually found a local one that cost me $150, and while I am lucky it only cost that much, this has all been a HUGE headache which could have been avoided by clearer language demonstrated by this app.
