Apple's iOS 8 features new encryption to lock out government

Posted By Arizona Small Business Association, Friday, September 19, 2014

WASHINGTON (AFP) - Apple unveiled new policies that block its access to user's mobile devices, even with a warrant, the tech giant revealed late Wednesday.

Apple's updated privacy terms indicate that under its new mobile operating system, iOS 8, the company will not have access to customer passwords.

"Your personal data such as photos, messages (including attachments), e-mail, contacts, call history, iTunes content, notes, and reminders, is placed under the protection of your passcode," the new policy states on its website.

"Unlike our competitors, Apple cannot bypass your passcode and therefore cannot access this data. So it's not technically feasible for us to respond to government warrants for the extraction of this data from devices in their possession running iOS 8."
