78% of iPhones are protected by activating the lock


When Apple unveiled iOS 7, one feature that made police officials breathe a sigh of relief was the introduction of the lock, which allows you to locate and lock your iPhone if stolen.

Activating the lock system is a great thing, it prevents thieves from hard reset an iPhone once it is stolen. Considering that iPhone theft is a big crime problem, it was a big step forward for Apple; a new report suggests that nearly 4 out of 5 iPhone users have activated it. In a small survey conducted on Facebook, George Gascón found that 78% of 313 respondents had Find My iPhone or Activation Lock turned on. Of course this does not solve the problem of very frequent iPhone thefts, since thieves cannot know who has this service active or not, but it can make iPhone owners a little more relaxed as they can immediately block their devices if stolen. .
