Apple’s next two iPhones were designed before late Apple CEO Steve Jobs passed away in October 2011.

That revelation comes to us from San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón who has been in contact with Apple’s government liaison Michael Foulkes.

Gascón, who is working to spread technology capable of mitigating cellphone-related thefts in San Francisco, reveals that Apple won’t be able to initiate a so-called “kill switch” on the iPhone any time soon.

The kill switch, as you might expect, can be remotely activated by a consumer if their cellphone is lost or stolen.

According to Gascón, the next two iPhone models have already been designed – under Steve Jobs – and can’t be reworked to include the kill-switch technology at this time.
