    People are dumb. The principle is that devices help us all get round that. Users are not perfect, we all err. If the designers had thought ahead, or may be back, like Aslan the lion, that part is uncertain, they would remember that people are dumb, and make safety features to stop people doing dumb stuff.
    No amount of thinking ahead could possibly cover every single thing. That's just not feasible. A company tries to benefit it's consumers. However they cannot tailor their devices for the few and ignore the many. Yes, there are always improvements to be had. I'm sure it'll evolve as time goes by.

    Until then, as consumers, we should arm ourselves with knowledge. It's our most powerful weapon.

    I'm still wondering how the government is giving out $200 iPhones.
    It's called garnering votes...

    Safety features included with an iPhone are as follows:

    1. The option to passcode lock it.
    2. The option to automatically back up precious data to iCloud.
    3. The option to activate an iCloud activation lock to prevent thieves from using your phone.
    4. The ability to locate your phone.
    5. All sorts of accessibility features.
    6. The ability to re-download music, apps and video you previously purchased without having to re-purchases them in case you accidentally delete them.
    7. Other stuff

    That is providing more than enough to protect people from themselves, but no matter how you slice it, the purchaser is ultimately responsible for the things they buy, and you know it.

    Have you ever worked as a programmer? About 10% of the code is logic. The remaining 90% is idiot-proofing. People do stupid things either because they are stupid or to test the system. My money is on the former.

    I didn't know the government could afford to give people $200 iPhones.
    Actually, that would be $700 iPhones; there would be no subsidy since the devices are on prepaid plans. Though I suppose that is also another question: Is it Apple's fault that you have to pay $700 to replace your iPhone, that you thought was $200, because you aren't eligible for another subsidized phone until next year?
