The Government 'Purchased A Tool' To Access iPhones

The director of the FBI says the government purchased a tool that works on a "narrow slice" of iPhones. While I'm sure this will come as welcomed news to all the other agencies with iPhones to crack, Apple probably isn't too pleased. Thanks to Lloyd P. for the link.

The head of the FBI said Wednesday that the government had "purchased a tool" enabling investigators to access an iPhone belonging to San Bernardino gunman Syed Farook. The disclosure by James Comey in a speech at Ohio's Kenyon College was a departure from previous official statements, which had been vague in explaining the details of how the government broke into the phone last month.
