How can we forget about the spin on the iPhone involved in the San Bernardino bombings between Apple and the FBI… Well, another dramatic event has repeated the situation: in this case the attack against the Russian ambassador in Turkey, which has caused that governments ask Apple to unlock the iPhone 4s of its author . It seems and tracing the movements we have already seen in the past, it seems more than likely that Apple will once again refuse to unlock it as suggested by MacReports.
It appears that, after shooting down the perpetrator, the authorities found an iPhone 4s protected by a four-digit password , in a situation very similar to that experienced by the FBI. The Turkish police are trying to access the content, so far without success and Russia has offered to send a specialist to help unlock the terminal.
In the meantime, the Turkish authorities have already requested help from Apple without it seems that the Californians have yet given an answer. It is not clear to us how the matter will finally end, but if the events in San Bernardino come to pass, it seems that we will have headlines for some time to come. Nor do we know if the specialists will try to carry out a brute-force attack considering that it is a four-digit PIN.
