iPhones stolen in lootings of Apple stores in the US are tracked, disabled and the local authorities notified, according to messages displayed on their screens. Apple has temporarily closed some of its US stores following a series of attacks, amid protests over the death of George Floyd. Several images of the warnings have been shared on social media. Apple said that it did not comment on “security matters”.
