The case was registered as a biggest-profile clash, as the Federal agency and a technology giant was directly involved in it. The debate was over the data privacy, encryption technology and user’s trust on the company. The FBI strongly appeals that if they can get the encryption keys for the Apple iPhones, then they can solve several cases and can also stop many terrorist attacks.
On March 28, 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has announced that they were successful in unlocking the iPhone and have accessed all the data on the phone. “Due to some ‘technical aspects’, we cannot reveal the process of how they unlocked the iPhone nor the name of the third-party who helped to break the security features of one of the world’s top listed encrypted product”, as stated by the FBI. In reply, Apple made a statement that “we will continue to help the security agencies in their investigations, and are committed to increasing the security features of our products by looking for the data privacy of our users and any kind of attacks on our company’s data.”
