Apple shows off Activation Lock for iOS 7
Apple and other smartphone manufacturers have been lambasted by law enforcement officials for not doing enough to prevent smartphone related robberies, which have gone through the roof. Later this week, Apple, Samsung, Motorola and other OEMs are meeting in New York City with top law enforcement officials from San Francisco and New York to discuss ways to stop this epidemic.
The Activation Lock is available in beta starting today for the Apple iPhone with a version for the Apple iPad coming soon. A final public release is scheduled for the fall.
