Some people who took advantage of growing protests against racism in the US looted many stores, especially Apple Stores. However, Apple welcomed the looters stealing iPhone phones with a surprise message.
Anti-police protests in the USA continue to grow. While the people in the country tried to make their voices heard in actions against police violence, some alleged activists took advantage of the confusion and looted some shops. Apple stores were also the target of looters during the demonstrations.
Many iPhone phones were found to have been stolen after activists entered the Apple store on Walnut Street. However, Apple knew the serial number of the stolen phones and welcomed the opportunists who stole their phones with a surprise warning message.
Apple sends warning message to iPhone players in US actions
Apple said in the message is sent to the stolen iPhones that “Please come back to Apple Walnut Street”, the device was tracked and disabled. The message also reports that the iPhone has been tracked and officials have been warned. Although the method is dissuasive, it seems to be a difficult possibility for people to return the devices they stole. Nevertheless, it may be enough to scare those who try to steal from now on.
