Apple Blocks Stolen iPhones, Making it Useless for Thieves

With the rise of the #BlackLivesMatter movement in US, businesses have been affected as they are being raided by the people.

Over the last two days, four Apple stores have been robbed causing a huge loss as iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches and Macs have been stolen. However, Apple have added a feature whereby the phone cannot be unlocked when stolen. A pop-up message urging thieves to return the goods appear instead.

The device has proximity sensors that disallows thieves to unlock the phone, making them useless. A Twitter user has shared the message that states, “Please return to Apple Walnut Street. This device has been disabled and is being tracked. Local authorities will be alerted.”

This shows that no good comes from stealing, except leaving you with a guilty conscience.
