I'm surprised this revelation didn't provoke mass uproar:

Apple patents tech to let cops switch off iPhone video, camera and wi-fi

not surprising. the police have been able to turn off your car since 2009.

(from your article)


The police can then get on with the very difficult task of kettling protesters without having to worry about a few beating anyone to death.

Apple insists that the affected sites are mostly cinemas, theatres, concert grounds and similar locations, but it does admit that it could be used in "covert police or government operations which may require complete 'blackout' conditions".
