FBI Drops Its Legal Case Against Apple

The Justice Dept. confirmed Monday that it has dropped a legal case against Apple, demanding that the company help federal agents unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters. In the filing (available at http://www.scribd.com/doc/306202616/Apple-Status-report), posted today, the government confirmed that it “no longer requires the assistance” from Apple after it “successfully accessed the data on Farook’s iPhone.” However, neither the FBI nor the US Attorneys Office in Los Angeles would say how the iPhone was unlocked, or if Apple was told how it was done.
