In unexpected move the FBI asked the court to cancel today's hearing in the San Bernardino case.

Today, March 22, Apple and the FBI have been scheduled to face off in court in a hearing about the San Bernardino iPhone case. The FBI has asked the court to cancel the hearing because they need time to explore a method to access the terrorist iPhone proposed by an outside party.

Has the FBI accepted John McAfee's help? Apple said according to Engadget that they will insist to find out how the FBI is hacking the iPhone. At this point there is no information available on who that outside party is that will try to hack the iPhone 5c of the San Bernardino terrorist.

The FBI said in the motion that they need until April 5 to make an update to the court. If the outside party is successful the FBI does not need the help of Apple in the All Writs Act Order in this case said the statement filed by the FBI.

If you planned to demonstrate today outside the courthouse, cancel that. There is nothing happening today.
