Russian police offers $37,000 bounty to hack iPhone encryption

Not only are U.S. law enforcement officials fighting Apple on iPhone encryption for criminal cases, it appears that the Russian police want to be able to hack Apple's smartphones in a similar effort to fight crime. Russian authorities are reportedly buying equipment that will enable them to hack Apple's iOS encryption, and officials are also offering a $37,000 bounty to whomever could hack the phones.

As reported on RT News:

"If Apple products were to be used to commit crime, this equipment would help experts to search such a device for information pertaining to a criminal investigation," police spokesperson Nina Pelevina told Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper.
