    Truly Apple is doing the right thing in this case.

    Any programmer knows that any software that can bypass security mechanisms in a specific iPhone is also capable of bypassing the same mechanisms in every other iPhone of that type, and possibly more. All that's necessary is to change whatever identifiers are being selected. E.g., change whatever bit of code holds the serial number or GUID or whatever is tested for.

    Any argument that says it should be done because it's only for a specific piece of hardware is totally specious and should be ignored out of hand.
