The county's top prosecutor declared a boycott on iPhones because of Apple's refusal to help law enforcement break into the iPhone of a San Bernardino terrorist. "If Apple wants to become the official smartphone provider of ISIS and the Sinola Cartel, they can do so, but there's going to be a consequence," Montgomery said in a new conference Wednesday morning. The boycott means Montgomery will no longer issue an iPhone to new employees. In addition, existing workers will not receive any upgrades or replacements phones.
