The FBI hopes to unlock Farook’s iPhone without Apple’s participation


After the announcement, US Magistrate Sheri Pym agreed  to cancel Tuesday’s hearing and tentatively stayed an earlier order requiring Apple to assist the FBI in unlocking the iPhone. In a conference call with reporters, Apple attorneys said it’s premature to declare victory in the case because authorities could come back in a few weeks and insist they still need the company’s help. The company hopes the government will tell Apple about whatever method it uses to access the phone’s encrypted files but it may be up to the FBI to decide whether to share the information. The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a court brief supporting Apple’s position.
