Submission + - Apple might photo unauthorized iOS users->

AHuxley writes: Apple has applied for a patent on a method to differentiate between authorized and unauthorized users of a particular iOS device.
Once detected, certain features would be automatically disabled. Sensitive data could be sent to a remote server and the device before been deleted. Apple hopes to lock out thieves, and alerting the owner of possible intrusion. Pictures of the unauthorized user could be taken andGPS coordinates transmitted. How long before Jailbreak users are also tracked?
