This thread is less about a specific question and more for general discussion - but why does apple allow the iphone to be turned off when its passcode locked? After reading about several MR members who had phones stolen wherein the thief simply turned it off to avoid tracking, it seems like there would be an easy fix for this. It would be nice if the passcode lock would lock out the power switch to avoid being turned off OR the phone could somehow be awaken from being turned off via find my phone. I am guessing option one is more secure from an individuals privacy standpoint (I also like knowing when a device is off, its off) and likely easier to implement as well. So what says you? Wouldn't this be a nice feature for a future revision of iOS? I don't even really understand why it has been overlooked this long? I'd even like to see a passcode required to restore the phone when its plugged into iTunes but that may present problems if there were ever some major hang up on your phone and it was frozen. A hard reset is sometimes a nice safety net.
