Apple says terrorist's iCloud password was changed remotely while iPhone was in government's posession

In the latest development, Apple is claiming that the government inadvertently jeopardized the FBI’s investigation into the San Bernardino terrorist attack.
Senior Apple execs told reporters on Friday that the iCloud password linked to Syed Rizwan Farook’s iPhone 5c was changed less than 24 hours after federal investigators took possession of the phone. ABC News confirmed that the password was changed remotely by an IT employee of San Bernardino County, the terrorist’s former employer. If the password had remained the same, Apple claims, it might have been possible to access a backup of the iPhone stored in iCloud.
