SAN FRANCISCO — Top prosecutors in San Francisco and New York and the mayor of London are urging iPhone users to download Apple’s new iOS 7 operating system that includes a feature they believe might curb a rash of thefts.

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and London Mayor Boris Johnson said in a joint statement Wednesday they believe the iOS 7’s activation lock is an important step toward ending iPhone thefts worldwide.
