In 50 minutes more the plane will arrive at Long Beach Airport.
Im surprised no one has tried to heist one of these planes. Like ya itd be really risky but if you pull it off you have a freakin' 747 cargo jet with like 950,000,000 iphones worth of average of $1300 street price thats like a trillion dollars!!! :eek::eek::eek:

The pilot that uploaded the photo inside the plane said that he was carrying 195,000 iphones.

I think that this plane is a 767-300

Apple has the power to track every iphone around the world.

At this time they are doing nothing to stop theft of iphones but they know exactly where every iphone is located because you need to access itunes and other apple services. If someone stole your iphone they will do nothing, but if someone stole iphones from them they will trace every iphone even it is under a cave.

Every time an iphone access itunes or other apple service it sends the serial number. They could send a lock to a reported iphone to disable it.

Also if you go to your support page you could see all your devices and serial numbers, for example one of my iphones that is listed on the support page has been stolen, if Apple wants to help you could report a stolen device from the Support page and they could disable that phone very easily but they don't care.

I'd nonchalantly walk up to the pilot and make him and offer he can't refuse.

That is because the west coast UPS hub is at Ontario.

It's amazing how the people who think that tracking a plane with an iphone on it leads to other nefarious people getting information on it to lead to a hijacking...

... yet they use the same or similar service to make sure that mommy, daddy, grandma, or grandpa make it home safely from visiting them for the week.

Oh, the hypocrisy.

I don't think that in FlightAware they show bad information, could it landed in Long Beach and UPS show it like Los Angeles?

Did u order through verizon website?
I order it directly from the Apple Store, they always have the best service and they never fail you because they are Apple.

Next time order your phones thru the Apple Store directly to avoid issues.
