Apple Allegedly Making iPhones Harder to Hack

Matt Apuzzo and Katie Benner for The New York Times:


"Apple engineers have begun developing new security measures that would make it impossible for the government to break into a locked iPhone using methods similar to those now at the center of a court fight in California, according to people close to the company and security experts.

If Apple succeeds in upgrading its security - and experts say it almost surely will - the company will create a significant technical challenge for law enforcement agencies, even if the Obama administration wins its fight over access to data stored on an iPhone used by one of the killers in last year’s San Bernardino, Calif., rampage."


"This might be Apple's single greatest product of all time: Privacy."


Today, it’s a commodity, but it should be a right.
