FBI Unlocks San Bernardino Attacker's iPhone, Drops Case Against Apple
The FBI has successfully accessed the information on the iPhone belonging to the San Bernardino terrorist, the Justice Department says.
The government is now essentially dropping its legal action against Apple, Bret Baier reported.
Officials have asked a California judge to vacate her order directing the tech giant to comply with the effort.
Apple CEO Tim Cook had previously pushed back against the order, saying, “The U.S. government has asked us for something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create. They have asked us to build a backdoor to the iPhone."
The iPhone belonged to Syed Farook, the now-dead radicalized Muslim who went on a shooting rampage on Dec. 2 with his wife Tashfeen Malik, killing 14 people.
