The newest technology of Apple that is at our own fingertips will help the FBI investigate even further into the iPhone 5 belonging to Syed Rizwan Farook, one of the two San Bernardino terrorists. Apple is trying to get passed the passcode-lock, but if there are numerous attempts into this, the iPhone itself can restart, and absolutely ERASE all of its data and files stored within the phone. The FBI and Apple do NOT want this occur because then, there will be no answers to the questions the FBI is looking for, that can not and will not be answered due to how Syed Rizwan Farook is not alive. The iPhone is strongly important to the investigation because this will allow a large investigation to be conducted on what was going to happen, including what was planned between Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik, the couple who caused the San Bernardino attack. According to the article, there may be a possibility that Apple can NOT get through the passcode. “That path into the device is no longer possible,” Neuman said (FBI investigator). The change in the encryption method means Apple, itself, may not be able to decrypt the data. The company could, however, bypass the access code system that would cause the data to be erased, and then grant the FBI access to the encrypted data. Federal investigators would then have to decrypt the data themselves, Neuman said. (1)
I think that either way, Apple has to find some sort of solution if they could NOT find a quick response to the FBI. I also think that since Apple is helping the FBI investigate even further on a big event that occurred, on the other hand, Apple is also making themselves look good. The modern technology that we have helps the service of justice to be made. A modern-day technology advanced company like Apple, is now beginning to be NOT ONLY on they products they make and sell but, they are also starting to help other companies and teaming up with other industries using their own technology. They are finding great solutions that no one ever thought of. Technology is finding new solutions to problems we face. Technology is also something valuable that is also helping people. The technology we have, is now at our own fingertips, for our own use.
