This is pretty good, but there has to be a way for this to work even if the SIM card is replaced and Mobile Data disabled.

And the government will be able to engage your kill switch with a warrant any time they deem it necessary.
I'm sure someone will figure out a way to un kill it and/or make use of parts.
Lol, Apple will copy samsung and microsoft by adding a Kill Switch to iOS 9. Apple users left out for another year.
Ha! why not just add a self-destruction function which will make the device explode & kill the thief
Vino31, 20 Jun 2014Apple will patent this.I believe, Apple already patent this. Now it's time for more revenue for apple because every single MS/Android device will sell, Apple will make money. I think, it is another nasty move by Apple.

Kill switches don't matter. Theifs will still make close to $200 selling these on ebay. Remmber the parts, minus the motherboard, themselves costs at least $200 combined. So if someone's got a broken phone you simply transfer the broken part and you've got a brand new phone.
