Breaking News: Apple Wins Case Similar to One Where Government Wants It to Break Into a Terrorist’s Phone

“Apple Inc. [has] won a pivotal clash with the U.S. over privacy rights, with a Brooklyn judge ruling that the company doesn’t have to help unlock a drug dealer’s iPhone,” reports Bloomberg Business.

The story adds, “For months, Apple has rebuffed U.S. requests that it assist investigators seeking to crack into encrypted iPhones,” and today “Magistrate Judge James Orenstein said Apple doesn’t have to comply with the government’s demands.”

Separately, Apple is fighting in court another judge’s order that it must help the FBI break into an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists in December.

  1. Once Apple is forced to develop the ability to unlock any iPhone (and they don’t have it now), not only the government but every hacker worth their name will develop that ability shortly thereafter. Whenever you hear the phrase, “I’m from the government and I’m hear to help you”, be very afraid.
