Using Photos, Owner Tracks iPhone

A Disney cruise line worker suspected of stealing a passenger’s iPhone has been placed on “administrative leave” after photos he took of himself were uploaded to an iCloud account used by the phone’s owner. Katy McCaffrey put a name on the suspect, who took pictures of himself partying with crew members, after spotting his name tag in one of the photos. “We take these matters very seriously. We have a zero tolerance policy for this type of behavior,” a spokesman for Disney Cruises told reporters. “We recovered the phone and we’ve been in touch with the guest.” The iPhone’s iCloud auto-upload feature can be disabled using an on/off switch in the phone’s settings.
