iOS Activation Lock

Graham Cluley imparts some useful information for Intego’s blog: iPhone thefts drop in major cities as result of iOS 7′s Activation Lock. As it happens, I was asked about the Microsoft/Google kill switch and was slightly sceptical about some of the conclusions based on the Attorney General’s statistics, but as far as the iPhone is concerned, the implementation of the Activation Lock has certainly coincided and maybe resulted in a sizeable reduction in attacks targeting iPhone users. In any case, Graham’s summary of the iPhone mechanism is well worth reading if you have an iPhone.
