    Apologizes if this has already been posted.

    Any ideas on why Apple would kill this very useful tool on their website?

    Apple inexplicably removes iCloud Activation Lock status page, which helped people avoid buying stolen iPhones - 9to5Mac

    I saw that on 9to5 Mac today also and I agree it is odd Apple removed it. I wonder is people were abusing it somehow?

    Hmm. How would they be abusing it?

    Or potentially there was some security type of flaw in relation to it somewhere so they might have taken it down until they get it addressed.

    Hopefully there is a valid reason. Although Apple has been taking away user support little by little.
