My son lost his iPad on a weekend getaway. He didn't remember his iCloud password, and had to initiate an account recovery to get it back so I could help him search for the device. For reasons not even Apple's tech support was able to explain, there's a 24 hour period where *nothing* happens before they allow you to create a new password. During that 24 hour time, a thief could have done a lot of things with the iPad, including wiping it. Also during that 24 hour time, we drove away from the area where he lost it, and are now 8 hours away from it unable to look for it. To add insult to injury (and again for reasons unknown to Apple's own tech "experts", Apple only stores the information where the iPad last transmitted a signal for...drumroll...24 hours! So now that the iPad has a drained battery and/or has been wiped clean by a thief, we don't even have a way of figuring out where it was last. We can't contact the police to help us find it. We can't contact local businesses where it might be. What the ****** was Apple thinking when they implemented those arbitrary and ridiculously user-unfriendly 24 hour rules? It's crazy! My son is devastated to have lost his iPad. Thank you, Apple, we are moving to Google, where no such arbitrary limitations exist and the last location where your device transmitted will be stored forever.
