If you steal an iPhone remember to turn off the location tracking first

In what sound like a bit of a “Fail” moment for Apple it seems the security feature they were touting in the WWDC to help people find where their iPhone it is stolen can easily turned off. This is in stark contrast to the other vendors hardware tracking options like on Dell’s laptops that once turned on cannot be turned off. This makes it sound less like a security option and more like a feature to find your phone when you left it under the couch.
