The battle between the FBI and Apple continues, with the bureau still not able to get access to two iPhones relating to the Pensacola terrorism case.
The FBI famously asked Apple to help unlock the iPhone 7 and iPhone 5 belonging to the alleged perpetrator of the attack in January, despite there being known exploits for both of them. However, Apple said that it had done all that it could – including handing over data from iCloud.
Now a statement from FBI Director Christopher Wray, via Bloomberg, claims that the outfit has “reconstructed an iPhone belonging to the shooter” and that it is “currently engaged with Apple hoping to see if we can get better help from them so we can get access to that phone.”
As tends to be the case with these things, President Trump has been involved, saying that Apple should help out.
They could have given us that information. It would have been very helpful. Apple has to help us. And I’m very strong on it. They have the keys to so many criminals and criminal minds.
Apple, for its part, refuses to assist and says that it has gone as far as it is able to. No matter how many times the FBI requests Apple add a “back door” to its iPhones, Apple refuses to.
This is clearly a case that will continue to rumble on and on.
