It’s over. The FBI, likely with the help of one or more hackers that had approached it, figured out how to get into the iPhone of Syed Rizwan Farook, one of the San Bernardino attackers. The FBI now has what it needs:
- The data on Farook’s iPhone
- A way to get into all iPhones with this version of the operating system.
Problem solved – for the FBI, and it is dropping the case with a short filing that lacked all the details we really wanted to know.
