The Justice Department announced Monday that they found a way to unlock the IPhone used by Syed Rizwan Farook, without Apple’s help!
The San Bernardino shooter’s phone has caused a public debate on whether privacy or security was more important. Of course Apple had refused to assist with a backdoor for the FBI’s investigation in respect of the privacy of their users.
How was the FBI able to bypass Apple? Well we don’t quite know, the only thing we do know is an unnamed third party was able to get the job done.
We can only imagine the folks at Apple are not happy with the hack and want to know exactly what tech weakness they had to allow it. It’s said the FBI have already begun examining the contents on the phone.
