every technology can eventually be cracked the fact that apple doesn't want its clueless buyers to understand this is foolish. They think if you are someone who commits crime or is a pervert then that secret will be yours and no one elses. if you buy an apple phone. the fact is thats just not true. From my understanding what has to happen is someone has to sideload a hacked os on to this phone that has been authenticated.. not the most impossible thing in the world to do but when you are talking about data that could lead back to contacts with ISIS Leaders both in syria and outside of syria then this has to be done perfectly or you can screw it up bad... and there won't be a second try. Apple has admitted they have the ability to do this.. its not the end of the world if they didn't do this.. but heres the thing
.. when is it more of a benefit to keep your porn safe vs catch criminals? It could be a single murder victim or a rapist or in this case the possibility of a ISIS terror cell in the USA that needs to be stopped. The Judge makes that decision. There should be times when Apple unlocks phones and that should be when a court order is requiring them to do that.. what if your loved one snaps a pic of their murderer and you can't get in to find out who..
