Apple showed this new feature in iOS 7 called Activation Lock, that if you enable "Find My iPhone" on a device that is lost or stolen, a person that finds/gets the iPhone will not be able to wipe it or reset it. I'm curious whether the lock is designed to prevent these avenues to defeat the lock:
Can they completely drain the battery and leave the phone in that state for a couple of months and then try it?
Or, can they use any third-party software that can access iPhone from outside the iTunes and wipe it that way?
Or, can they simply "jailbreak" it and forget about this Activation Lock?
Can this lock be defeated or bypassed?
