Apple is gearing up for a groundbreaking new security feature for the iPhone, aimed at making life difficult for thieves and robbers.

This new feature, named 'Stolen Device Protection', will require users to utilize their biometric data, such as Face ID or fingerprint, to perform certain actions on the phone.

This includes changing the password or removing Face ID, especially when the phone is in an unknown location, as reported by CBS News.

According to CBS News, this feature will be active under specific circumstances, adding an extra layer of security to iPhones' already leading data encryption.

"Data encryption on the iPhone has long been industry-leading, and a thief cannot access data on a stolen iPhone without knowing the user's password.

In the rare cases where a thief can observe the user entering the password and then steal the device, Stolen Device Protection adds a sophisticated new layer of protection," an Apple spokesperson told the media.

The new function has not yet been rolled out to the public but is part of Apple's beta software program.
