The Federal Bureau of Investigation promised other US law enforcement agencies to help them unlock Apple devices belonging to suspected criminals. The agency found that its method for unlocking the iPhone in San Bernardino case proved successful, and it will therefore consider any tool that will aid its peers.
In fact, it is not a secret that the FBI has notoriously rocky partnerships with non-federal law enforcement agencies. You may see it in the movies or in life, where the federal agents are typically portrayed as swooping in and taking over cases, leaving local police floundering. However, the development of encryption and tech firms’ measures to make mobile devices secure against criminals can also lock out the police from what they consider very important information.
According to reports, since last year’s San Bernardino case, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has been inundated with requests from other agencies for assistance in other cases. However, the FBI had previously refused to help in local cases, including a murder in Arkansas. The agency also has yet to widely divulge how it accessed the data on San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone. Its representatives pointed out that the absence of lawful, critical investigative tools due to the “Going Dark” problem remain one of the major state and local law enforcement challenges of today.
On the other hand, the rumors are that Apple’s smartphones newer than the iPhone 5C are much harder to break into. In the wake of Edward Snowden’s revelations about government snooping, Apple and other tech giants have committed to encryption as a way to keep communications private and keep criminals out, and they still stick to this position, refusing to help the government break into the electronic device.
