Future iPhones might capture a thief’s photo and fingerprint when stolen

Apple may be interested in an anti-theft measure that involves covertly capturing both a photo and fingerprint of a phone thief without his or her knowledge. This system was detailed in a new patent application published today and suggests Apple may incorporate some version of the technology into future iPhones and iPads. The company imagines a system by which a "trigger condition" would result in the collection of biometric information on whomever is holding the iPhone. These trigger conditions could be unauthorized access from a third-party device or the detection of an unauthorized user attempting to bypass the security features of the phone.
