Apple to close iPhone security hole that police use to crack devices

The New York Times:

Apple is closing the technological loophole that let authorities hack into iPhones, angering police and other officials and reigniting a debate over whether the government has a right to get into the personal devices that are at the center of modern life.

But privacy advocates said Apple would be right to fix a security flaw that has become easier and cheaper to exploit.

While this may be bad news for law enforcement, keep in mind what Rich Mogull says on Twitter:

In every conversation I have with people (at Apple) it’s about making things inherently more secure, not about trying to stymie any particular government or agency.
