The New York City Police Department is encouraging iPhone and iPad users to upgrade to the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system, iOS 7, as a way to discourage thieves.

NYPD officers were reportedly handing out informational flyers to passersby, urging them to upgrade to iOS 7 to take advantage of new security features. Twitter user Michael Hoffman published a picture of one of the flyers on Sunday.

The Activation Lock feature that comes with iOS 7 keeps a thief from erasing the device's data and reactivating it. Instead, the original Apple ID and password used to activate a device are needed to perform such actions or to deactivate Find My iPhone.
