How the Lost Mode works on iOS 7 devices and iCloud

One of the biggest changes involved in the iOS 7 update came out this week is the Lost Mode in iCloud. Lost Mode allows any device connected to your own Apple ID to be locked down with a 4 digit PIN code and seamlessly track its movements on the map. But how secure this can be? And how does it work?

How to activate the Lost Mode

Lost Mode can be activated only through Find my iPhone, either on or from the iOS app, it doesn’t matter which one you choose. After having selected the lost device, you have three options. Play Sound, Erase, and Lost Mode. Play sound simply makes the device ring an alarm even if it is silenced or audio is muted, while Erase will delete every content on it, even if after doing so it will be impossible to locate it again.

In fact, it features a complete, full-fledged option to download videos on YouTube; just paste the URL, choose file size and format and you’re ready to go. Personally, I’ve lost enough time searching for one that works like it should and finally I found it. Output videos are perfect and not altered from its uploaded counterpart on the website.

iOS 7 beta 2: all the bugs and issues encountered as of now

When we talked about iOS 7 beta 1, despite the gorgeous looks it lacked stability and performance. With beta 2, we seen there were several improvements on points like speed and reactivity. However, iOS 7 beta 2, for us at least, is far from being perfect. In this article, after two weeks of extensive, everyday usage on iPhone 4S we’re going to cover pros and cons met in these days. For this reason, we highly suggest you to read this post.

Unfortunately, iOS 7 Beta 2 is not what we were expecting. It is surely a step forward in the right direction considering its development stage, yet currently not as stable as iOS 6 used to be and not bulletproof against bugs either.
