It took a long time for the iPhone theft stories to die down. For a long time, it seemed like everyone was getting their iPhones stolen or stealing iPhones or whatever. However, it seems like it’s finally started to die down… but that won’t last long, because as it turns out, the latest Apple product is a boon to potential thieves. If your iWatch gets stolen, thieves can reprogram it without any true security.
All it takes to reprogram the iWatch to your iPhone, rather than the iPhone of the person you stole it from, all you have to do is hold down the power button, select. and then erase all the data to remove the protective passcode from the phone. Of course, there’s no real way to remotely wipe data from something that doesn’t actively connect to the Internet, and I guess if a normal watch gets stolen, it stays stolen. The Apple Watch is a bit different, but apparently not that much different.Technorati Tags: apple, apple watch, apple watch able to be reprogrammed, apple watch easy to steal, Gadgets, security
