court battle over the iPhone of Syed Farook

Apple the company is a high name brand everyone wants one. Almost everyone has one they store our lives information on just one small device. With all that in mind Apple knows that the phone was taken lawfully. But the problem is that the iPhone has 3 key thing to do on order to get the information they need. First they could erase the information depending on how the phone is set up. Second they have 10 tries to unlock the phone with that in mind they don’t know if he set it up that way. Also with that you have waiting time in between each pin guess. Apple can help the FBI if they work with its software so the FBI can lawfully search the phone. Apple has the ability to temporarily update the software on Farook’s iPhone and remove the three barriers to using a brute-force attack. Now any iPhone will accept new software, it checks to see if the software update has a valid signature from Apple. Because only Apple has these signatures, only Apple can update Farook’s iPhone. The FBI cannot do this without Apple’s help. The FBI wants to bring Farook’s iPhone to Apple, let the manufacturer perform the temporary update, and then allow the FBI to remotely perform a brute force attack to discover Farook’s passcode. Once the FBI has discovered the passcode, Apple simply reverses the update and returns the iPhone with its original software and contents to the FBI.
