Am I Stupid or Tired
Below is quote from BBC news on the same story . . . .
"The US government ended up paying another company a reported $1m (£770,000) to develop software to get around the device's encryption."
Does that not suggest the encryption is already undermined. How? Did they brute force it, did they go zero day hunting? I'm not an apple buyer but was always under the impression their encryption was pretty good (well you would since it is obviously a selling point).
If it can be broken for $1 meeellliion its practically worthless YMMV.
