Good informative article. I might add that what people seem to miss is that if the iPhone were not such a secure device, criminals would use other methods to secure their data. If Apple were to reduce the security features in iOS, it would do very little to really help law enforcement in cases moving forward, but jeopardize privacy for the rest of us, because if the courts establish a precedent of forcing Apple to compromise iOS security for the FBI, what’s to stop them from doing so to any other company that attempts to protect its clients with encryption technology? So, the overall effect of giving the government the ability to hack one phone is not increased national security, but, in fact, REDUCED national security.
