06:55 EDTAAPLApple launches new iOS 8 phones with 'kill switch'
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon revealed that new iPhones sold with iOS 8 will include Apple’s theft deterrent system, Activation Lock, as a default setting. This marks the first time in the history of the smartphone industry that theft deterrent technology is available by default on new products. In addition to being standard on the new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, newly-sold iPhones will also prompt users to upgrade to iOS 8. Additionally, the new operating system can also be installed on most previous models of iPhones. As co-chairs of the Secure Our Smartphone, or S.O.S. Initiative, Attorney General Schneiderman and District Attorney Gascon led the effort to call on the wireless industry to address the global rise in smartphone thefts. The ultimate goal of SOS is for every mobile device to have a “kill switch” on by default. A default solution is imperative because it ensures that the device will be worthless to thieves.
