Apple has come out triumphant in an iPhone unlocking case registered in New York, as reported by CNBC. The victory’s timing couldn’t be any more perfect as Apple’s date with Congress concerning the San Bernandino iPhone unlocking case is tomorrow.
The federal judge ruled on Monday that the U.S government cannot force apple to surpass its security policy and unlock the iPhone in a New York drug case. In the San Bernandino iPhone 5c case, the FBI has been asking Apple to unlock the iPhone under the same All Writs Act(AWA).
U.S magistrate judge James Orenstein’s ruling that the government cannot force Apple to unlock the iPhone under the All Writs Act of 1789 has bolstered Apple’s case. Apple has highlighted privacy concerns as the reason why the tech giant cannot bypass the security measures and put millions of its customers in jeopardy, whereas the government has cited “security reasons” behind their demand. The ongoing case has fired off a debate around the world about the balance of digital privacy and security measures enforceable by the government.
According to CNBC, a senior Apple executive said that Judge Orensetin’s decision will help them bolster their case in front of congress.
Apple’s official say on the issue according to court records is, “this could threaten the trust between Apple and its customers and substantially tarnish the Apple brand.” It is natural for a big brand like Apple to safeguard the data of its customers. Throughout the years, Apple has gained a reputation of a company with a very strict security policy, and so it is very clear that Apple would like to maintain that image.
Apple’s CEO Tim Cook sent a personal letter to every Apple employee explaining the company’s stance on the issue. The company also revealed that FBI fluffed the chance of gaining access to the device when they changed the iCloud password of the terrorists’ account.
