The story that I got was that Apple arranged for a computer tech to privately assist Uncle Sam in getting in to the phone.  Maybe by now, there people who have access to this information.  Maybe by now, Apple has made changes. I still bet iPhones are more secure than Android phones.  I bet iPhones are even more secure than Windows PC’s.

p.S.  I don’t remember which cable news channel I got this news report  from.

No. They most certainly did not cave-in.

Yes, and I believe Apple caved in, if I remember right.

I remember the United States threatening to take Apple to court a while
back.  They needed to know how to by pass the security on an iPhone owned by
a terrorist.

I doubt if Apple's password protection is ludacris.

This entire security thing seems as farcical as face I D on iPhones.  In
order to get into your iPhone all the thief needs to do is point the device
at you and poof he or she can use your device. I'm sure I am wrong but a
computer tech told me years ago all one needs to do to use a password
protected computer is take out a small piece and then anyone can use it
after that.

try looking for a software called konboot that should allow you to log in to
those accounts with a password and remove them I think.
otherwise you may have to re--install windows thus removing everything on
the system and starting from scratch.
