Justice Dep't Appeals iPhone-Unlocking Decision in New York

In the latest volley in its high-profile fight with Apple, the Justice Department said that a federal judge in Brooklyn had erred last week in refusing to order the company to unlock a drug dealer’s iPhone. “Apple is not being asked to do anything it does not currently have the capability to do,” Justice Department prosecutors said as they appealed the decision made Magistrate Judge James Orenstein of Federal District Court for the Eastern District of New York.
