FBI Trick For Breaking Into iPhone Likely To Leak

Apple and other experts seem to think that whatever method the FBI is using to break into phones will be obsolete soon.

When Apple does fix the flaw, it is expected to announce it to customers and thereby extend the rare public battle over security holes, a debate that typically rages out of public view. The Federal Bureau of Investigation last week dropped its courtroom quest to force Apple to hack into the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino shooters, saying an unidentified party provided a method for getting around the deceased killer's unknown passcode.
