The Apple Service Activation Lock helps to reduce the number of thefts of iPhone, reported the New York Times.

Some media quoted police sources from major cities who reported that theft in the U.S. and UK  decreased after the presentation of the mobile operating system iOS 7 last year.

According to San Francisco police stolen iPhone fell 38 percent because of Activation Lock. In the British capital thefts fell by 24% and in New York the value is 19%.

Function Activation Lock, first introduced in iOS 7 provides users of Apple, that when trying to erase all data on the phone and one for the reactivation of the device will require exact iCloud password on the Apple user account, making theft more rather pointless. So the phone is actually locked to only one person and he is the only one who can change the password and add another username if you decide to sell it.

Expected other manufacturers to get involved in adding these security features.
