But what model and version of os? Older versions did not have the same security settings on by default . A phone with an older os may very likely be quite easy to get into

The article has a quote that Apple can unlock it and won't, which if true is where I disagree with them since they have a federal court order and the govt followed all required legal requirements ...but it still seems to be a lot of hearsay from both sides
What difference does which version of operating system does it make? They caved 70 times.

Flexible ethics. The hallmark of progressivism.

huge difference, the old operating system they have said could be gotten into...the new one added default security settings which they say they cannot.
plus the issue isnt that they will or wont get into this phone its that they wont write backdoor into their code for law enforcement.
Huge difference?

Don't think so. Flexible ethics.

Think about it for a second.

If the government was to publish "evidence" from the phone that proves terrorist intent without Apple's involvement it would prove publicly what most of us already know, which is they already have a back door. How many people are ignorant of the quantity of information and the many publicized examples of the government's gleaning of information? Does anyone really think that the government can't break into anything? Ask German chancellor Merkle.

The government is playing innocent. Ground yourself in reality.
OTOH, we are bombarded daily with evidence of incompetent bungling, sloth, laziness, buffoonery, and various other reasons to conclude that the bureaucrats wear loafers because they can't tie their own shoes.

Incompetence is always a plausible explanation for government activities and misadventures.

The saving grace is that if they want to badly enough, they command virtually limitless resources to throw at a problem, no matter what it costs or how long it may take. When you are spending someone else's money, there is no point in skimping.
Is there really a difference between a government that is made up of a bunch of bumbling idiots trying to accomplish a goal of tyranny over the citizenry or a government skilled at accomplishing the same goal?

Does anyone really trust our current government made up of either idiot or skilled tyrants?

As someone else famously said, "common sense is not so common"...

The NSA can't break into it?? They are slacking.
