US keeps Apple encryption battle alive in drug case

The US Drug Enforcement Agency and the FBI went to court in New York to compel Apple to help it break into an iPhone confiscated in June 2014 from a suspected methamphetamine trafficker on April 8, 2016The US government on Friday kept its encryption battle with Apple alive, pressing the high-tech giant to help crack an iPhone in a drug case in New York. The move by the Justice Department comes after a high-stakes showdown between Apple and the FBI over access to the iPhone of a California gunman came to an abrupt end, when investigators said they had extracted the data on their own. Key questions thus remain about law enforcement access to devices with strong encryption and how to balance that with user privacy rights — questions that could be answered if the government’s case in New York goes forward.
