To Whom it May Concern:

    

     My name is Michelle. I have a basic question. My ipad recently came up missing on January 22, 2013. Its been a major issue because i am so attached to it. I carry it around in my purse and put it to great use. I was wondering if there was a way to track its location with GPS, or possibly see its where-abouts via the internet. I know there has been one purchase made on my account that wasn't me on January 28, 2013 for $1.00. I never setup the find my ipad app or went through the setup process however i was thinking maybe there was a way to track it by its serial number? Ive seen the police do it. If theres any information you could help me with concerning this isssue i would greatly appreciate it.

 

Thank You,

Sincerely,

Michelle

Unless you activated Find My iPad/Phone, there's no way.

 

Report to police along with serial number. Change all your passwords.

If you don't know your lost/stolen iPad's serial number, use the instructions below. The S/N is also on the iPad's box.
