That was easy. I unlocked the three iPhones we have in our family just like that. I filed a request (at Customer Device Unlock- Request).

Inside Apple’s Internal Training Program In a class at the company’s internal training program, the so-called Apple University, the instructor likened the 11 lithographs that make up Picasso’s “The Bull” to the way Apple builds its smartphones and other devices.
