Activation Lock

Apple is making stealing its users' mobile devices more of a pain for thieves with Activation Lock. This feature won't keep thieves away, stop them from removing the Find My iPhone app or prevent them from swiping your data from your device, but if they try using the device again, they won't be able to without first entering your iCloud login information, thus leaving them with a useless Apple product.
