    My IPad Pro was stolen. If the person that took it and wipes all the data and starts fresh. Is there a way to track it down still or is it gone?

    Did you had the “find my ipad” enabled? If so, then your iPad is still linked to your account and he/she can’t do anything about it, even deleting doesn’t allow him/her to get control of your iPad, in brief is just a paperweight.

    More like he stoled the iPad and is seeing if he will be tracked once he turns it on:D

    Let's not accuse without the facts and assume he is the victim.

    Nope, A Birthday present from my wife last month. Not use to having one so did not think twice when I left it in the back seat of my Jeep. I am not a tech person but I have a hard time reading my damn phone. Jeep got broken into and radio, ham radio, cb, and IPad got taken. Can not track any of the other items but have feelers out at local pawn shops. Unless my wife setup the tracking thing on the IPad I doubt it is done.

    Wife is sooooooooooo pissed at me right now.

    I know you were not talking to me but I’ve been married 20 years, 21 this December and My wife has never got mad at me for being victim to a crime. I assume you were joking though.

    Well he did leave it in his car...so it was avoidable. Mistakes happen but never wise to leave anything valuable in your car like that.

    Did you sign in using an email ( AppleID )? Typically users sign in with the same AppleID as their iPhone. Just doing this automatically enables Activation Lock.

    Log in to iCloud.com with your AppleID and find your device. DO NOT REMOVE from iCloud/Account. This would give the thief access to your device, none of your information would be visible, but they would no longer have a brick.

    Heck I got in a weekend agrument because she asked me to get
    She is not mad at that, she is mad because I left it in my Jeep in view. She is mad because she just spent money that we could have used else where on a gift that I did not appreciate enough to not just leave laying around. She is mad because it also took me almost 2 days to realize it was gone. She is also upset that someone came on to our property and broke into our Jeeps and stole from us. She is not mad at me because I was a victim but from all the stuff surrounding it.

    Thank you, unless my wife set it up it was not done. I would still be using a flip phone if they still had them. I hate new technology. Life is easier with pen and paper in my opinion.

    Some Apple ID was likely used on the device. Log into the Apple ID site, see if you can find the device- that would be the answer.

    Did you lock the iPad via Find My iPhone app or iCloud.com option?

    Back in March I had an iPad stolen in a house burglary. The problem was two-fold. First I shutoff the Wifi option “ask to join networks”. I shut if off because of the incessant prompts when I have my iPad with me during travels. Hence, the thief never could get to the Wifi because he first had to get past the Apple ID prompt. I think Apple has the sequence backwards. Connecting to Wifi ought to be the first available gate, then once connected, the prompt for the Apple ID is the next gate. This way you would get a location ping and raise the possibility of getting the iPad back.
