What happens to the stolen equipment?
The value of the stolen goods is around 5.5 million euros, but criminals will not benefit much from it.
As expected, Apple has everything planned for this type of event. It is known that the company strictly controls its shipments and carefully records the serial numbers of every product that is transported on each route.
Therefore, the company can use the Activation Lock feature through the IMEI number to deactivate most of the stolen devices. You can even find some of them to restore or collect data for research.
Products can also be disassembled to be sold as replacement parts, making them very difficult to identify and locate.
