The saga between Apple and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the United States has been a hot topic for the last couple of weeks. In summary, Apple was asked by the government to unlock a terrorist bomber’s iPhone 5C, which Apple have refused to do, guarding the privacy of their consumers. You can check out the full story here.

After Apple’s constant refusal to provide backdoor access to the iPhone, the FBI claim they have managed to hack the phone in question, and do not require any additional assistance from Apple in proceeding further. The hack remains very mysterious with there being no disclosure of any additional details but it may put the ongoing saga between Apple and the government to rest.

By law, federal officials are supposed to inform companies of such vulnerabilities in order to safeguard the interests of millions of people on the internet but it remains to see if the government discloses information to Apple about their hack or keeps their lips sealed after what has unfolded between the two in recent times.

Are you relieved that this saga may finally be over? Would you want the government to report to Apple on how they broke their phone or do you think Apple doesn’t have the right to know after they refused to assist the government? Lets us know in the comments down below!
