My brother's truck was broken into and both of our laptops are missing. What should I do? I have AppleCare, but my brother does not. I've only had the laptop not even a month before this happened. Can I delete the data? I could use any help...
Are both you and your brother ok? I'm happy you weren't hurt during the robbery. What's that, you weren't in the truck when the laptops were stolen? Ahh, I understand now, you left them in the truck all alone and vulnerable..
Seriously, I'm sorry to hear that, I know it sucks to lose a device or have it stolen. But I wouldn't ever leave anything of value in my vehicle these days. Good luck in getting them back or replaced.
Hopefully you and your brother have learned from this. Never leave anything of value in a vehicle. If it's necessary, then make sure it can not be seen. Remember, "Out of sight, out of mind!". Most thieves won't break into a vehicle if they don't see anything to steal.
This is unfortunate. I really wonder why Apple won't turn ON Find My Mac by default. I mean, what is the point of providing a tracker app without loading it by default. Most Mac buyers aren't aware of this feature.
