Because security should not only be online, Apple will probably have to reconsider Apple Stores security practices, as iPhone thieves seem to be dismayed. Totally, though.
The San Francisco Police Department provided material from two recent robberies at an Apple Store in the Bay Area. The robberies took place on November 25 and November 29 in the Chestnut Street area of San Francisco.
The first video shows three perpetrators invading the Apple Store and with quick movements (in less than 15 seconds) emptying the front shelves. Similarly, in the second clip, four actors show that they can at identical times.
In both cases, staff and customers were scared and simply watched the perpetrators pick up devices from the shelves.
The police hope that with the release of the video will lead to the capture of the perpetrators, who until now remain unintelligible.
Let's say this kind of robbery is a common phenomenon in New York. In July, the New York Police Department announced that robbers dressed as Apple employees were removing iPhones from its stores. In October, thieves removed smartphones worth 13.000 dollars from another Apple store in Massachusetts.
