FBI Agrees to Unlock Another iPhone – is The New iPhone Hacking Sheriff in Town?
The FBI has said it is willing to help unlock another iPhone for criminal investigation purpose.
Police in Arkansas is desperate to unlock an iPhone and iPod belonging to two suspected killers, according to the Associated Press (AP).
Two days after the FBI’s announcement of being able to access the iPhone handset used by the San Bernardino killer Syed Farook, the agency is now extending its offer to help the Arkansas prosecutors in the homicide case.
Two teenagers, Hunter Drexler, 18, and Justin Staton, 15, are accused of killing two people in Conway, Arkansas last July.
The FBI was able to hack Farook’s iPhone in a mysterious way after Apple refused to help the agency, arguing that it would compromise the security of their product that might lead to vulnerabilities and back-door access in many other iPhones.
