(KRON)—Apple is gambling that its customers can be trusted not to steal iPhones from its retail stores.
They are removing the tethers from the display models.
Apple says it is trying improve the overall shopping experience.
Leaders at Apple admit they are decreasing security, but say stealing a display model would be pointless.
First, an alarm will sound.
If the thief manages to get away, a store manager will be able to “brick” the device remotely.
“Bricking” makes the phone unusable, basically turning it into a brick.
The changes are being implemented at apple’s flagship store in London before hitting stores worldwide.
