The US authorities gave up their attempts to force Apple to unlock one of its iPhones in another court case after being given a passcode. Apparently, someone had given investigators the passcode to a device linked to a drug investigation.

Previously, the government abandoned a high-profile case to force the tech giant to help it hack into the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone. At the time, the FBI announced just ahead of its court date that it had bought a hacking tool to break into the device and therefore no longer needed Apple’s help.

The authorities claim they are missing out on key evidence due to strong encryption and innovative privacy features, but it now turns out that there are a lot of ways to collect data. In the current case, an individual provided the passcode to the iPhone, using which the government gained access to the device. The authorities didn’t disclose the identity of the individual who supplied the passcode.
