Apple Removes Tool to Check if an iPhone or iPad is Activation Locked

Well this sucks. The worst part is that there was no explanation at all as to why the company has removed the tool and has not responded to requests for comment yet.

Apple has removed its Activation Lock status checker on at some point in the past few days. The tool enabled users to enter the serial number or IMEI of an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and find out if the device is secured with Activation Lock, helping buyers avoid purchasing a device locked to another user.
