Apple Teaches the FBI How to Extract Data from iPhone and Mac
Apple has often been criticized for not helping the FBI and other police break into locked devices to extract data supposed to help during investigations, but it turns out that the company does work with the feds on teaching them how to deal with information stored on its phones and laptops.
A report published by Forbes and citing John Bennett, the head of San Francisco’s FBI division, reveals that Apple is teaching the bureau’s experts to extra data from iPhone, Mac, and iCloud accounts.
Cupertino, however, doesn’t provide any kind of guidance as to how to break the encryption of its devices or hack them, but instead does alert FBI’s experts when new updates for iOS and macOS could bring changes that might impact the current state of an investigation.
