Apple Is Served A Search Warrant To Unlock Texas Church Gunman’s iPhone

An anonymous reader quotes the New York Daily News:
Authorities in Texas served Apple with a search warrant in order to gain access to the Sutherland Springs church shooter’s cellphone files. Texas Ranger Kevin Wright obtained the warrant last week, according to San Antonio Express-News.

Investigators are hoping to gain access to gunman Devin Patrick Kelley’s digital photos, messages, calls, videos, social media passwords, address book and data since January 2016. Authorities also want to know what files Kelley stored in his iCloud account.

Fast Company writes that “it’s very likely that Apple will give the Rangers the same answer it gave the FBI in 2016 (in effect, hell no!)… That may be why, in the Texas case, the FBI and the Rangers didn’t even bother calling Apple, but rather went straight to court.”
