US Government Dropped Another iPhone Case

The US authorities gave up their attempts to force Apple to unlock one of its iPhones in another court case after being given a passcode. Apparently, someone had given investigators the passcode to a device linked to a drug investigation.


Previously, the government abandoned a high-profile case to force the tech giant to help it hack into the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone. At the time, the FBI announced just ahead of its court date that it had bought a hacking tool to break into the device and therefore no longer needed Apple’s help.

The authorities claim they are missing out on key evidence due to strong encryption and innovative privacy features, but it now turns out that there are a lot of ways to collect data. In the current case, an individual provided the passcode to the iPhone, using which the government gained access to the device. The authorities didn’t disclose the identity of the individual who supplied the passcode.

Previously, Apple usually helped the government extract data from locked mobile devices. However, after a number of high-profile data breaches and the Snowden disclosures, tech firms saw consumers’ trust undermined and began adding stronger encryption and privacy features to their products. Apple was not an exception and developed new mobile software that could no longer allow it to extract data for authorities. Anyway, the iPhone in the recent local drug case was running older software the company was still able to crack, even if the phone was locked.

A few months ago, the iPhone maker began objecting to the legal theory the US authorities were using in many of its iPhone unlocking cases. The problem was that some civil liberties advocates feared that such a theory, if uncontested, could eventually be used to force tech firms to change their products with strong encryption in order to make them more accessible to the law enforcement.

The question became irrelevant several months ago when the defendant pleaded guilty. However, both the government and the tech company urged the court to rule anyway, trying to set a legal precedent for such unlocking cases. The ruling was not in the government’s favor. Recently, when the government was going to fight Apple in court over the San Bernardino iPhone, the judge ruled in Apple’s favor. However, the government then appealed and the parties were headed back to court.

No avatarI don't think anyone gave them the passcode. They have a way in any phones manufactured by SHITpple. Thanks to that Israeli company.

SirSeedsAlot avatarUSA has associated so much with national security it makes it nearly impossible for government to be honest with its own citizens. Think about that and what it means as things progress toward even more advanced weaponry and surveillance. We the people eventually become a national security risk. It's simple logic.

Asymmetric avatarIt's funny that the droid fan girls are quick to believe the US government got into both of those Iphones with zero proof that it happened, just based on their word. It was clear Apple wasn't going to back down and law enforcement needed to save face. Proof, or it didn't happen.

It's funny how some isheeps will suck into every shit by CRApple. Proofs you said, please prove how come is SHITfone 6 faster than "40%" than its predecessor as claimed by your lord? Ask for a proof from SHITpple that Cook is actually gay. You need proofs, I will give you a proof that SHITpple makes overpriced junk. Go and watch a video Samsung Galaxy SIII connectivity demo on YT. Even a 4 years old Android phone kicks CRApple's ass. isheeps like you will believe only and only what your lord SHITpple says. What a shame. Regarding cracking of that terrorist's phone and in this case the drug investigation why don't you ask the FBI directly? No one is going to give people like you proofs. You just keep on believing whatever SHITpple says.

What are you 12? I don't even own any Apple products. Why do you children insist upon which phone a person owns is even a thing? That was pathetic years ago and is just sad now. This is an article about the FBI dropping a lawsuit. There are plenty of people in the world that do not believe everything that is shoved down their throat by government agencies that lie about everything. If you do, so be it. I don't give 2 spits about you or your OMG super awesome Samsung Galaxy SIII. Your name calling, homophobic rant tell me all I need to know about who and what you are.

No avatarI'm sorry but Shamesung is just as bad, if not worse, than Crapple.

The only thing even sorta good is the Nexus series with its trashy crap specs, lack of removable battery and SD card hate.
