Apple to Close Loophole Used by Police to Unlock iPhones

Apple said this week that it will be changing a default setting on the iPhone to prevent it from being unlocked without the user’s authorization.

In an official statement, the phone maker said that they are constantly strengthening the security protections in every product to protect their customers against hackers, identity thieves and unwanted intrusions into their personal data.

However, the company also clarified that it has the greatest respect for law enforcement and they do not deliberately design security improvements to frustrate their efforts.

It was noted that in 2016 Apple had refused to unlock an iPhone of the gunman involved in the San Bernardino shooting.
