Unable to locate it :D what a smart idea. So if an iPhone gets stolen the person that has it needs to put a Passcode to turn it off completely.
So we have time to find the phone.

- also when we taking a video with it. Also have a option to hold on to the button so it doesn't automatically switch off. Also if it's stolen it should take pictures of the person as well and video.

Useless feature. A thief would simply hold down the lock + home button to turn the phone off.

Pretty useless feature. Wrap it in aluminium foil, and let battery drain while it's searching for signal. Problem solved.

So disable that when this feature is implemented. Did I just blow your mind?

Yeah, ok. This assumes that said thief has a roll of foil in his pocket just waiting to wrap around his freshly stolen phone.

Every corner bodega will have one for sale. Or when Apple releases another "magical and innovative" theft prevention feature, I am sure people who steal phones would know about it.
