Apple Bricks And Tracks iPhones Stolen From Stores

Apple Bricks And Tracks iPhones Stolen From Stores”

Disappointed thieves have been posting on social media that their stolen iPhones are blocked like this.

Instead of being able to reset and use their newly-acquired phones, looters are getting a message displayed on their screen asking them to return the phone to the store, adding, "This device has been disabled and is being tracked".

A new report shows 3D-printed mock-ups of four iPhone 12 units, revealing a potential physical design and some insight: if they're to be believed, this year's Apple phones have all had their SIM trays relocated to make room for 5G antennas. And finally, it ends with "local authorities will be alerted".

The company was beginning to reopen over 100 of their stores across the United States following the closure due to the coronavirus. During recent protests following the death of George Floyd while in police custody in Minneapolis, looters have taken advantage of the civil unrest to break into Apple Stores in Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Salt Lake City and Washington, D.C. Chauvin has since been charged with third-degree murder and manslaughter.

Stolen Apple iPhones apparently show a message on screen stating that the devices are being tracked

We kid, but the Apple Store anti-theft system apparently works, yet the company isn't taking any chances, and started boarding up plenty of downtown stores after emptying their showfloors and device warehousing.

"Today, Apple is making donations to a number of groups, including the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit committed to challenging racial injustice, ending mass incarceration, and protecting the human rights of the most vulnerable people in American society", Cook wrote in the memo obtained by Bloomberg.

An Apple spokesperson declined to comment for this story, citing matters of security.
