abigfanoftechs, 15 Jun 2018Credit to Apple for this move. Data privacy is where iOS will eventually dominate the mobile OSes.Right, as much as I dislike a lot of the business decisions Apple makes and the general direction it takes wireless... I have to agree in terms of privacy and data protection they are making the right moves!!

i have also read reports that greykey have already hacked the patch to stop the hack.

Anonymous, 15 Jun 2018U know a simple way to bypass getting hacked ? Use a pin more than 6 digits. Either you didn't understand the article, or didn't read the entire thing.

In the latest series of Homeland, Carrie Matheson target is unconscious.
Carrie Matheson opens his iPhone by pressing his finger against the fingerprint scanner
Whilst I don't fully understand what greykey is surely more information is gained from the sim card, who he/ she has called and the websites visited, anything else is just media, is the iPhone being used as an encrypted USB
Face id and fingerprint offer speed but with the open with ease if incapacitated
Password opening is the best, Windows phone increases the refresh time for each unsuccessful attempt after 5, so two minutes, then 5 minutes, then 10 etc.
Blackberry have 10 unsuccessful limit before the phone is completely wiped, again more valuable information is the sim card

Rather t... morePrivate data is private data and nobody should be able to access it. Just like the data and memories inside your brain. Nobody has the rights and nobody should have the rights to access those. (not even after one's death)
By your logic, governments should have the means and be allowed to hack their way into someone's brain and see what they are/were thinking all their lives. And all this in order to "catch drug dealers, criminals, and terrorists". And the same with personal and private data, right?
Although this might have the potential to make catching the above criminal easier, it would also open the gates of reading anyone's minds and see what they are really thinking. You know all those white lies you tell people just to make them feel better about themselves? You know all the thoughts you might have about a specific issue or someone? Like really hate someone or something or whatever? All your opinions that you keep inside your head? Well, everything will be made easily accessible to the government (and implicitly other parties as well) in case something like this existed.
Private data should remain private and should not be accessed by anyone else other than the owner of it, be it private data in your head, or private data stored digitally.
If you can't prevent and can't catch criminals without getting access to their data, you are not doing a good job at all.

Good on you Apple.
They didn't have to take this step but they did for the security of their users - some things about Apple really impress me..
