The UK government unsurprisingly finds that the iPhone 5s is more prone to theft
The UK government published a new report highlighting mobile theft in the country. According to the statistics, iPhones are more likely to be targeted in a theft, followed by BlackBerry smartphones and Samsung's offerings.
The government's research indicates that most handsets are stolen through pick-pocketing, or when a handset is left unattended for a short amount of time. London seems to witness a majority of smartphone-related thefts, with the city bearing witness to over 100,000 thefts last year. Handset manufacturers are actively looking to curtail mobile-related thefts by introducing activation lock and data deletion features, and while such services are not yet mandatory in the UK, the government is advising all smartphone users to register for these utilties.
