For several years now, Apple devices have been forming a single network to find missing devices. For this, the Bluetooth of each apple device in the vicinity is used. If a loss is found, information about the smartphone’s location or any other company product will be sent to the owner. If you believe the find of the foreign edition of XDA, similar functionality will appear in Android. Information about this was found in the code of the upcoming update of Google Play services.
In smartphones based on the Google system, there was a search for missing devices before, but it did not work as efficiently. Then, it was possible to find only those smartphones connected to the network and have access to Google Play services. Now, using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, you can find almost any lost or stolen device.
