Speculation surrounding the upcoming iPhone (iPhone 5...6? New new iPhone?) is unsurprisingly furious. Rumors have been flying around about a liquidmetal body, a thinner touchscreen, and larger display, and even a redesigned home button. The newest feature that might grace the new iPhone blows all of those out of the water.

Don't worry about losing your next-gen device, because chances are, the thief won't be able to enjoy it. In fact, they probably won't even be able to unlock it.

That's because once they type the wrong passcode in three times, your new iPhone will self-destruct.

Okay, no, not really. But this video courtesy Aatma Studio should give Apple some ideas about proper security. Forget "find my phone," you'll enjoy the piece of mind that somewhere, at any given moment, your trusty iCompanion is about to go all bank bag on someone. Wait - that's the only way to make this better. Exploding dye.

The iPhone cracks itself if siri perceives it as stolen. Before you go why siri why, self destruction is activated only if you have enabled the iphone unlock error security feature on the concept iPhone 5.

After 3 strikes, Siri radio quickly does an iPhone data transfer to your iTunes; and goes onto decimate all your information on the phone. You are notified on iTunes, where the iPhone data recovery is now available only to you, as it should be.

If you cant have the iphone, NO one can!

Check it out below:

As one YouTuber says, "Wow, imagine a drunk night at a bar? F*ck...I'd be pounding through iPhones." That would be a concern - a forgetful rightful owner initiating self-destruct mode on their own iPhone. Then again, it might prevent an untold number of regrettable ex-girlfriend drunk texts.
