The FBI recently sent a letter to Apple on Monday seeking help with getting 2 iPhones thought to be owned by the suspected shooter who murdered 3 people at Pensacola, Florida Naval Air Station in December, unlocked. This means FBI might be headed for another showdown with Apple. The suspect, Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, was a Saudi airforce trainee, and he was killed at the scene by a deputy.
According to an Apple spokesman, they already helped FBI with the case, but he did not mention if they would help access the iPhones or not. His words, “When the FBI requested information from us relating to this case a month ago, we gave them all of the data in our possession and we will continue to support them with the data we have available.”
