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.
