By now, you probably know that the FBI wants Apple to build a “backdoor” that circumvents some passcode security features on iOS in order to get to data stored on an iPhone 5c as part of its investigation into the San Bernardino terrorist attack.
The iPhone 5c is an older model and it lacks some security features, such as Touch ID and the Secure Enclave present in newer models like the iPhone 6 and 6s. But what about those newer models? Could Apple conceivably be forced into building a backdoor for those phones, too? The answer, it seems, is “yes.”
