Apple Say No to Judge’s iPhone Backdoor Order

  • On Feb 16, Apple rejected the request by a U.S. federal judge to help bypass encryption of San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone 5C.
  • Specifically made three requests:
    • Disable iOS auto-erase function
    • Enable FBI to submit passcodes to the device electronically
    • Disable passcode entry delays
  • To comply with the request, Apple says that this will put their customers in danger as it effectively creates a backdoor to all iPhones.
  • In an iPhone, only Apple signed software is allowed to run. Because of this FBI cannot load new software to iPhone on their own.
