We all know that a video or files that are being stored on an smartphoen device like an iPhone, can be sometimes a very important part of evidence when it comes to crimes.

Not long ago a federal judge asked Apple to state exactly if they can extract data from a locked iPhone that the government agency wants to investigate.

However the response was not what they expected.

The Cupertino-based company had one answer which is not really clear to anyone.



The company stated that unlocking iPhones running one of the company's newer operating systems (iOS 8 or iOS 9) is beyond its capacity due to full-disk encryption. However, it did say that it can extract some unencrypted data from locked iPhones running older iOS versions.



It also gave a perfect reason why they won't be doing anything to change it.

Apple said "Forcing Apple to extract data in this case, absent clear legal authority to do so, could threaten the trust between Apple and its customers and substantially tarnish the Apple brand," the company said in a brief. "This reputational harm could have a longer term economic impact beyond the mere cost of performing the single extraction at issue."



It really shows that the American company cares about their customers and their rights, and they cannot do anything to loose the great business and the faith of its biggest fans.



The discusion might begin right now, if the company has the right to block the device completely, or should it change in special occasions.
