The Department of Justice and Apple -- The iPhone Saga Continues

Apple and the Feds -- Part 2

In my post dated April 1, 2016 (located here), I suggested that the dispute between the Department of Justice (which includes the FBI) and Apple about accessing iPhones was not going away any time soon.  It most certainly is not.  The Department of Justice today indicated that it will be appealing the ruling in a case in Brooklyn because it still needs Apple's help unlocking an iPhone.  In fact, the FBI Director stated yesterday that the apparently successful hack utilized in connection with the San Bernardino iPhone will not work on later models.

Stay tuned as this issue works its way through the legal system.
