Feds scrap Apple lawsuit in New York

The Department of Justice will no longer go after Apple in court in an effort to compel the company to unlock an iPhone related to aBrooklyn drug case. According to the court document US Attorney Robert Capers submitted (and obtained by Apple Insider), someone already handed the feds the passcode they needed. If you’ll recall, the DOJ filed a lawsuit against Cupertino in the state, using the All Writs Act to get the tech titan to comply.

Authorities also dropped the San Bernardino lawsuit after theypaidhackers with a history of selling software vulnerabilities to the government fora toolthat cracked the device open.
