You May No Longer Be Able To Know If The iPhone You Bought Was Stolen

Apple consumers confounded as activation lock from
icloud.com suddenly goes missing. With this activation
lock, consumers are able to purchase used devices and
prevent stolen ones using the serial number or IMEI of IOS
devices.

This was first reported by Mac Rumors. In order to access
the activation lock authentication step, you would have to
visit iCloud.com/activationlock. This link would have given
you a step for one person-to-person Iphone and Ipad
sales, instead an Apple 404 “Not Found” page would be
seen.

Immediately after it was released on IOS 7, resellers
experienced issues due to the activation lock system.It is
now a regular routine for companies dealing on IOS
devices either for trade or donations to request the
activation lock to disable the devices from its current
users. This will result in difficulty in verifying the
ownership of an Iphone which is to be purchased on Ebay
for that very attractive price as whether it was stolen or
not.

No public hearing from Apple as to why the tool was
removed, but request has been sent to Apple to ascertain
the cause.
