Question

Lost IPad without WiFi access

By LesleeNeedsHelp ·
Tags: Apple
How can I display a message on my lost iPad without it connecting to WiFi? I have a password on my iPad so if it is found they will not be able to connect to WiFi. Therefore the lost message will stay in pending and never display. This means there is no way for me to tell the finder how to contact me ?

"Each of your Apple devices emits a constantly changing key that nearby Apple devices pick up. Essentially, each device is turned into a beacon, and the devices all bounce off each other. Nearby Apple devices upload your device’s location – fully encrypted –allowing you to track it, even when it’s offline."
