Apple is tracking iPhones stolen by looters

Apple is sending a clear message to people who’ve stolen iPhones from its stores: You’re “being tracked.”

The company is actively disabling the iPhones that are stolen from the displays of its retail stores, leaving them inoperable.
Screenshots of Apple’s warning message started to pop up on sites such as Twitter and Reddit earlier this week amid global protests following the death of George Floyd.
Apple stores, which recently started reopening across the United States after months of closures due to the global pandemic, reported vandalism and theft at several locations, including in New York, Philadelphia and Washington, DC.
“Please return to Apple Walnut Street,” read one message, referencing its Philadelphia location, posted to Twitter. “The device has been disabled and is being tracked. Local authorities will be alerted.”
