Last February , the FBI demanded that Apple release the iPhone 5c of a terrorist. The issue eventually became one of the controversies of the year after Apple refused and comenzase a dialectic war with the Feds, which ended with the FBI paying a million dollars for an exploit that, apparently , it does not work on models recent phone.

Now, eight months later the FBI again get their hands on the iPhone locked another terrorist died according to Wired . The phone belongs to Dahir Adan, who stabbed 10 people in a Minnesota mall, and the feds have said in a press conference that are evaluating their technical and legal options to try to unlock it .

What they have not said so far is the model that neither version of the operating system is. There are two key factors in determining how to proceed, as from iOS in 2014 Apple began to encrypt data phones so that even they could access them.

So far neither Apple nor the FBI wanted to comment further. So all were waiting to see how come each other this time to avoid the hostilities of the first half of the year, which led to other large technology as Google is posicionasen for Apple and its refusal to cooperate with justice to try to prevent a worrying precedent for the future.

Give in, or not to give your users' data?
The previous case opened an interesting debate about how far technology companies should jump through hoops when the authorities provide private data of its customers. In these cases we have seen attitudes as opposed as the Apple refusing round and that of Yahoo, which as we learned this week , it has been providing the NSA back to your email client doors.

The case of San Bernardino ended ensuring that the FBI did not need the help of Apple and paying a million dollars for an exploit . Although shortly after it was learned that possibly exploit altough not for newer models of iPhone, and in any case would have been enough to spend only 90 euros in components. What will happen this time?
