With the release of this new tool, Apple wants to make the process of checking for Activation Lock easier, and prevent people from buying a device that might have been locked because it was lost, stolen, or simply because the previous owner forgot remove the device from his account.
By going to iCloud.com/ActivationLock, anyone can enter the IMEI or Serial Number of an iOS device to check its status. If the device is locked, a message clarifies that the current user’s Apple ID and password will be required before anyone else can activate and use the device.
If Activation Lock is turned off, then Apple gives the green light, noting the device is ready to set up and use.
Although there are already other ways to check the Activation Lock status of a device, this tool will undoubtedly be useful to anyone about to purchase a new iOS device, assuming they know about the existence of this webpage. It is unclear when Apple made this Activation Lock check available but it appears to be very recent.
