Apple has introduced many new features in its flagship products at its Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC 2019) which started yesterday and will wind up on 7th June. Apple launched Find My app, revamping features of its existing Find My iPhone. The good news is that the latest update allows users to find their iPhones or MacBook even when the devices are offline. This makes it easier to find them.

So how will that work? Apple informed that the working mechanism involves sending out a secure Bluetooth signal occasionally that can be detected by other Apple device owners. This will help people to track their products as it results in a network that helps people connect and find lost devices through anonymous, encrypted, and a secure signal relay. A map will then show the location of where the device is located.

In fact, the company has combined Find My Friends and Find My iPhone in a single app which will be simply called Find My. The idea of this update is that one can track everything in a single place, including friends and phones. The app will be available on both iOS and macOS.

Applealso announced in the event that it has created separate TV,Podcasts, and Music apps ending its iTunes era.  It has introduced its own version of Google Maps’ Street View and provided HomeKit support for home security cameras and routers.  Many more updates are yet to come.

Undoubtedly, Apple is a leading producer of tech gadgets with high security and it will be interesting to know what more it brings forward.
