Apple Adding More Anti-Theft Features

Many of the top companies in cellular service have come together to compile a list of regulations that will help prevent theft and help recover smartphones after they have been stolen. Apple is the latest company to become a part of this coalition, planning to add new features, as reported by Apple Balla.

With iOS 7, Apple introduced a number of features that can help recover lost iPhones, since they are the most stolen devices on the planet, but this agreement means they will have their work cut out for them adding additional features in the coming months and years.

The regulations demand that there be features in place to not only remotely lock and wipe iPhones, they will have to be able to recover the information and data once they have recovered the phone. Doing this will dramatically increase their security, which along with the finding feature will help thousands of people recover the phones that have been taken from them.

They join Microsoft, T-Mobile, US Cellular, Verizon, Huawei, HTC, Google, AT&T, and their enemies at Samsung in this agreement. These companies already have some of the features in place, but everyone is working towards putting everything in place and ensuring that their customers are protected. We will have to wait until the coming months and years to see what kind of features and design these will have, but Apple will likely be making an announcement with the upcoming iOS 8 that is expected to be released sometime in 2014 along with the rest of their new devices.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
