March 21, 2016 - Uncategorized
Apple and the FBI meet in court on Tuesday for the first hearing in the showdown over iPhone encryption, but this fight has been brewing since Apple introduced iOS 8 in June 2014.
A new Bloomberg report reveals that the FBI and Apple both expected the White House to take their side before the fight went public.
It all started with iOS 8
According to Bloomberg’s sources, Apple’s top lawyer, Bruce Sewell, met with officials in President Barack Obama’s administration shortly after the Worldwide Developers Conference in 2014 to discuss iOS 8’s security and privacy changes.
