NYPD wants you to install Apple's iOS 7 onto your iPhone

The New York Police Department would like you to install iOS 7, please (NASDAQ:AAPL)
| Operating Systems News | Posted: Sep 22, 2013 6:31 am

The New York Police Department seem to share boxes of donuts with Apple, going as far as being crowd control at and around Apple stores on iPhone launch days, for example when the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C launched over the weekend.




Thanks to the new iPhone's being announced, the NYPD is expecting an increase in theft of Apple's latest smartphones. Apple's iOS 7 features new security measures that help deter theft, with the NYPD and other police agencies in the US using it to secure their smartphones, making their jobs easier.


The new feature that the NYPD likes is the Activation Lock, which forces anyone who has your phone to enter an Apple ID and passwords before they can turn off the "Find My Phone" security feature, erase it, or reactivate it. Because this happens, someone who steals your phone would need to enter in their secure information, which most would do in the excitement of nabbing themselves a new iPhone.
