Apple Is Making An Unhackable iPhone
 

According to the NY Times, Apple is working very hard on building new iPhone software nobody can hack into.

Due to the San Bernardino shooting in California, law enforcement agencies are pressurizing the company to launch a new version of iOS.

The new OS is expected to introduce a backdoor to bypass security. The recent report suggests that Apple is responding to the security issue by trying hard to build a new, secure OS that would make it impossible to break into iPhones.

The new setup would even be difficult to break by the company itself, indirectly rejecting the FBI’s recent security request.

As mentioned above, the FBI is pressuring the company to build a separate version of iOS without security which will be installed to the iPhone 5S belonging to one of the San Bernardino shooters.

The security-less iOS will extract exact data from the shooter’s device.

It is possible for Apple to update such software which can be interrupted by the FBI.

Apple has never created such software, and they don’t want to either.

However, in the serious, case like this it can be forced on the company.

Apple is very serious in making its phones impenetrable, especially due to the recent happenings.

And, if the report is accurate and Apple builds software which is impossible to access this would make a big difference.

The pressure from the FBI and the other security agencies to gain access to iOS is pressurizing Tim Cook to build software that cannot be accessed.

Tim Cook is taking the San Bernardino situation very seriously. He has recently cleared Apple’s stance in an interview to ABC’s David Muir.

Tim Cook called the potential new version of iOS which will be used to gain access to iPhones the “software equivalent of cancer”.
