If the police ever try to force you to unlock your iPhone, you can temporarily disable TouchID in iOS 11. Of course, that won’t stop them from getting a search warrant, but that is part of the lawful process anyway.
The proposed law, which would force companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook to build backdoors into their encrypted platforms, betrays the Australian government’s baffling lack of understanding.
The UK police got unlocked access to a suspect’s iPhone but, unlike the FBI earlier this year, they didn’t have to ask Apple to hack it. Interestingly, though, the FBI did something very similar to the UK police a few years ago. Listen to hear more. Then it’s on to how Apple might just be our last hope to save the integrity of the internet. John Martellaro explains!
Forget backdoors and lawsuits. Police in the UK have come up with an interesting solution to Apple’s strong iOS encryption: they simply waited for the suspect to unlock his device and then snatched it right out of his hands.
