Submission + - Apple patents remotely disabling jailbroken phones (patentvest.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Apple today applied for Patent to allow remotely disabling "unathorized usage" of iphones. While the patent application covers using the camera to take pictures of the unauthorized user and using the gps to determine location, it also includes determining whether the phone has been jailbroken, and allows the carrier or any other "authorized" party to disable or restrict the functionality of the device. Are this hidden claims Apple's latest tool to thwart Jailbreaking?
