Today’s pieces of portable technology such as iPhones and iPads are extremely valuable to their owners not only because of their cost but also because of the information stored on such devices. There has been a rather significant effort lately by some companies working as an iPhone app developer to ensure that people who misplace their iPhones or even get them stolen are able to recover those devices swiftly through the help of a locator beacon that is a part of an application. These types of tracking devices could be very helpful in the future for obtaining the location of bigger stolen items beyond iPhones.
