FBI months later, after futile attempts to hack into the iPhone of a military man – Saudi Arabian Air Force intern Mohammed Saeed al-Shamrani – was able to succeed. A citizen of Saudi Arabia, recall, in December 2019, shot three people on the basis of the U.S. Navy and wounded eight. FBI officials and the U.S. Attorney General said access to information significantly accelerated the investigation process.

US Attorney General William Barr praised the FBI for the work done, noted the indifference of Apple, and also pointed out the significant financial costs of hacking a smartphone that fell on the shoulders of taxpayers.

Earlier, Apple said it provided data from iCloud (and a number of other information available to it) that belonged to al-Shamrani, but the company could not help hacking the iPhones themselves (the military intern had two).

According to Barr, Apple’s decision to refuse FBI assistance could lead to adverse consequences, jeopardizing public safety. The Attorney General acknowledges the need to preserve the integrity of user data, but “not at that price.”

Earlier, the FBI had already offered Apple to release a special version of iOS, which would allow in some cases to access data on “apple” mobile phones. The company has calculated and continues to consider this approach dangerous.
