A California federal judge granted Monday at the request of US authorities to postpone a scheduled hearing Tuesday in the legal tussle between them and Apple to access data from the iPhone to one of the authors of the killing of San Bernardino.
the authorities said they had probably found a way to penetrate the device system without Apple’s cooperation and they require the postponement of the hearing next time to test this method , about which they do not deliver any detail, according to a court document filed with the federal Riverside court, California.
this rebound raises questions about the continuation of this highly publicized legal confrontation between the imperatives security defended by the authorities to protect user data put forward by Apple.
the US government has already obtained the justice that Apple should develop software to disable protecting personal codes data access iPhone Rizwan Syed Farook, one of the authors of the massacre of San Bernardino, California, that killed 14 people and wounded 22 on December 2. The two authors of the shooting were then shot by the police.
Supported by much of the technology sector, Apple disputed this ruling on the grounds that it could lead users of its devices to doubt the confidentiality of their data. (Joseph Menn and Mari Saito; Bertrand Boucey for the French service)
