Spotlight: Apple, FBI testimonies reveal new insight on iPhone kerfuffle

Tools

FBI director James Comey admitted Tuesday that there were mistakes made during his agency's investigation of an iPhone linked to the San Bernardino attacks, according to Re/code. Apple has long held that it could have helped the FBI glean the information it wanted without going to the lengths recently demanded by a federal court. However, any chance of that happening disappeared when the FBI ordered county law enforcement to change the iCloud password to more quickly get at information. Comey's admission goes against an unrepentant tone earlier expressed by the federal agency on the password change.
