Can the new Find My service from Apple locate laptops even if the disk is wiped?
I had a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) running macOS 10.15 Catalina that was linked to an iCloud account and had Find My Mac enabled. This laptop recently went missing; it's still connected to my iCloud account and still shows up in the list of all devices, but only as Offline.
According to news articles, a Mac running 10.15 will periodically emit a locator beacon using Bluetooth Low Energy when it's awake or sleeping (but not while powered off, I assume).
In upcoming versions of iOS and macOS, the new Find My feature will broadcast Bluetooth signals from Apple devices even when they're offline, allowing nearby Apple devices to relay their location to the cloud. Wired
Would the laptop still emit a Bluetooth locator beacon that could be picked up by other macOS/iOS devices, even if the disk has been wiped?
