How To Track A IPhone: The Old School And Modern Way
“How to track a Iphone?” Each of us may have a different reason why we would want to track down a cell phone and spy on them. Perhaps we are suspecting that our partner… our spouse is using the cell phone to communicate with another ‘lover’. Some of us, on the other hand, may want to just make sure that they can follow their children (who carry the phone) wherever they go, and make sure that they are out of harm’s out.
For others, learning how to track a cell phone would allow them to make sure that the company-issued cell phones and the phone usage bills (which can be financially straining when left alone on its own devices) are used for business purposes ONLY. As for others, it could be a different reason. Bottom line: for many of us, knowing how to track a Iphone could help answer some very important questions, and put our mind at ease in the process.
Let’s take a closer look at the old school and modern way of getting the job done:
1) How To Track A IPhone: The Old School Way
Back in the days; say 10 or 20 years ago, iPhone Ortung and tracking software / apps are virtually non-existent. People, who would want to investigate what their spouse or partner is doing while he/she is away during the wee hours of the night, would have to hire a private investigator. It can be very expensive, it’s intrusive, BUT unfortunately, that’s the only way.
Eventually, technology advanced and there came primitive Iphone tracking tools, which known as Where-Is services back then. For these services to work, the cell phone’s chosen carrier and service provider would have to be supported by the Where-Is service provider. Along with that, you need to send a text message or call a special number to keep you updated where the cell phone and its owner is. This usually involves fees for every text message or phone call. And that’s just about everything you get out of it: the location of the Iphone during your call. You don’t get call logs, you can’t see the text messages stored in the phone, etc.
True, the latter old school methods of tracking down and spying on a cell phone does work. HOWEVER, the inherent limitations of such old cell phone spying services make it inconvenient to use and, for some, even expensive. BUT fast forward today, how does one spy on a phone… how to track a cell phone?
