We're all over the map today, folks. There are news stories about Maps, about Apple TV, a fix for a security problem, and the NYPD is on the case. Tons more inside as we all move into our post-iOS 6 world.
The security features in iOS 7 have been praised by many who were formerly harsh critics of the few (but nevertheless extant) safeguards against theft on iDevices, including New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman and San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon. But now that it's out, the NYPD is taking steps to ensure that as many people as possible download the new OS in hopes of curbing New York City's rising iPhone theft epidemic.
How does one gauge whether or not iOS device thefts are a huge problem in one city? Well, if the local police department forms a task squad solely dedicated to tracking down the perpetrators, things are probably kind of rough. Apparently, the NYPD is taking a serious approach to a growing problem.
