Stealing an iPhone is silly, but now it’s useless!



When you lose an iPhone due to lack of attention, or happen to have the misfortune of being robbed in the old-fashioned way. The reality is that most of the time, that iPhone is unusable unless the person knows its unlock code as well as the password for their iCloud account.

In other words, as long as there is an iCloud account on that device, and the person does not know its code and password… The iPhone in question will most likely not be used for much more than a paperweight.

However, due to improvements in the “theft” strategy of some malicious individuals, Apple decided to improve its anti-theft system a little with iOS 17.3.

Stealing an iPhone is silly, but now it’s useless!

So Apple has (finally!) released iOS 17.3! An update that in turn brings with it several necessary fixes for all compatible iPhones, as well as a new feature that could come in handy in the field of security.

We’re talking about Stolen Device Protection!

What is it for? Simple!

Thanks to new strategies on the part of robbers, there began to be several robberies in which the access pin as well as the iCloud password were already on the attacker’s side.

Or, at a time when Apple’s security capabilities with the iPhone were beginning to become known, there were threats to the victim’s physical integrity that made them willingly give them away.

In short, the idea was to be able to unlock the iPhone 100% and then sell it in the used world. Or, perhaps worse than that, have access to all of the victim’s private information, such as their personal data or banking information.

Therefore, Apple announced this new functionality, which changes the paradigm of how access to the device works. In other words, if you are robbed and your passwords are known, the iPhone combines various types of information such as Face ID or Touch ID, location, passwords, etc… To limit what the thief can do to your iPhone.

So, if you have an iPhone and have already updated to iOS 17.3… Activate the feature!
