Apple's iCloud exposes iPhone thief
iPhone user Katy McCaffrey was on board a Disney cruise last month when her smartphone was stolen. But Apple's iCloud service helped her get it back.
She did not recover the phone but apparently after the theft, new photos from the thief kept appearing in her iCloud account.
The thief was actually taking photos with her iPhone.
The iCloud service automatically uploads photos taken on the iPhone onto the cloud, which can then be viewed on other Apple devices.
McCaffrey then decided to upload the photos to her Facebook account.
The album was named "Stolen iPhone Adventures".
According to reports, the Facebook album has gone viral and has attracted news coverage.
For now, McCaffrey will get her iPhone back when the ship returns to shore.
