You can also log-in to iCloud.com on your computer where you have access to contacts,
calandars, mail and more. With the Find My iPhone feature you can also
see and track your lost or stolen Apple devices so long as they are switched on and connected
to the internet. From here you can play a sound on the device – if you think it was
lost – or erase it completed – if you think it was stolen.
Lost Mode will give a message on your iPhone which will allow the finder to call a number
that you specify. They will not have access to any other features on your iPhone. You
will also need to download the Find My iPhone app onto your device for these features to
work. Storage allowance (01:40)
Apple currently gives you 5GB of free space on their iCloud but if you want more you can
buy a storage upgrade straight from your device. For more video guides, visit broadbandchoices.co.uk
