APPLE to undercut law-enforcement tool for cracking iPhones…

“SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Apple Inc (AAPL.O) said on Wednesday it will change its iPhone settings to undercut the most popular means for law enforcement to break into the devices” writes Joseph Menn for This also could spur sales of cracking devices, as law enforcement looks to get more forensic machines closer to where seizures occur.Apple and most private security experts argue that government contractors and others can usually find means of cracking devices.These companies have marketed their machines to law enforcement in multiple countries this year, offering the machines themselves for thousands of dollars but also per-phone pricing as low as $50.
