FBI: Resetting San Bernardino gunman's iCloud password wasn't a mistake
February 22, 2016 - Uncategorized
The FBI has responded to Apple’s claim that San Bernardino county officials reset the iCloud password associated with the gunman’s iPhone, which prevented the company from recovering information from the device.
In a statement first released Saturday night, an FBI spokesperson said that San Bernardino officials were working “cooperatively” with the FBI when the iCloud password was reset. The statement also countered Apple’s claims that the company would have been able to recover information from the device had the password not been reset.
