Apple today pushed out a revised version of its Find My iPhone application. The utility app helps iPhone (and iPad or iPod Touch) owners help locate lost or stolen devices on a map. The new version of Find My iPhone includes driving directions that will route device owners from their current location to the location of their lost or stolen device. The app also makes it easier for device owners to make their device play a sound, put it into lost mode, or erase it. Find My iPhone is a free application and service for Apple's iOS devices.

Can't wait

Man, I can't wait to see the first news story of someone getting killed trying to get their Iphone 5 back from someone in detroit that stole their phone..
Even better, why not be able to make the phone leak a highly caustic acid on the person that stole the phone or even explode!
Oh! can't do that. Criminals have rights too.
You can go to the authorities with the info, you don't have to go to the thief's place of residence yourself.

I thought that was obvious.

When I read the title...

I thought why is Apple giving more driving directions. It might say your phone is in Antarctica! Or like a lot of Australia cases it sends you to the middle of the desert and 2 hours away from your destination!
