The conflict between the FBI and Apple executives is partially settled. Everyone, as they say, remained with their own people: the head of Apple Tim Cook showed intransigence and refused to comply with the court's requirements to provide access to the terrorist Syed Farouk's phone, and the FBI did it on its own, hacking the killer's gadget.
And yet, according to many experts, this is bad news for the company itself and for its millions of customers: the protection was not as reliable as previously thought. In addition, apparently in revenge, the FBI refused to provide Apple with their "master key", with which they opened the iPhone security system.
Many are convinced that the fight will continue:
“It's not just this particular phone, ” said Alex Abdo, a lawyer representing the American Civil Liberties Union. "Unfortunately, today's news is just a pause in the inevitable battle in which the FBI will aggressively press its opponents at Apple to sacrifice the safety of their products in the name of overall safety."
