Oh Apple Inc how sneaky can you be! In the past if you wanted to get a newish iPhone you could always buy a used or pre-owned phone second.
Buyers of used iPhones could go online and use the Activation Lock to find out if the phone was stolen. But it looks like Apple is quietly killing off that feature!
So Apple is killing off the second iPhone market and making us buy iPhones brand new. So that savings of up to $300 will go directly to Apple!
