iPhone oddities

I upgraded my iPhone to iOS 10.3 the other day, and have been seeing some “lagging” in games which no longer flows as smooth as they used to. And also an increased battery drain, which seemed to stop once the adblocker app was updated. Coincidence or not? I’m not sure.

But the oddest thing happened today, when my (private) iPhone suddenly started a loud alarm (at work, which surprised everyone around).

Once checked, I found it to be the “Find my iPhone” making the noise. And an email was also sent out to the mailbox of my AppleID with the same message, that “a sound was played on <device>” on <date and time>.

But there’s no clue in the email as to why it played, or who initiated it. Until I know otherwise I can only assume someone was trying to locate or hack my phone remotely through the Find my iPhone feature. These times it feels comforting to at least have enabled 2FA for logins.

But it’s still annoying not knowing the cause of the alarm sound, or what triggered it.
