The unlocking of San Bernardino terrorist Syed Farook's iPhone has become a massive point of contention between Apple and the FBI over personal data security versus terrorism investigating. Apple has been repeatedly refused to develop a key that feds can use to potentially hack into all iPhones while the FBI cites national security concerns.
But a possible development may have just changed the game, according to KTLA.
The Department of Justice actually wants to cancel a hearing with Apple in an upcoming court battle, saying that "an outside party demonstrated to the FBI a possible method for unlocking Farook's iPhone. If the method is viable, it should eliminate the need for the assistance from Apple Inc."
