Apple to close iPhone security hole used by police
Apple says it is to change the default settings of its iPhone to stop hackers and others unlocking devices without proper legal authorisation. Apple denied the changes were designed to thwart US law enforcement. In 2016 Apple refused to help police unlock a phone used by a gunman who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, California. "We're constantly strengthening the security protections in every Apple product to help customers defend against hackers, identity thieves and intrusions into their personal data," Apple said in a statement. In 2016, a court order demanded that Apple help the FBI unlock the phone used by San Bernardino gunman Syed Rizwan Farook.
