Apple has offered help to the FBI to unlock the iPhone from the Texas church gunman in the United States, which left 26 people dead. Last year, federal police appealed to the court because the company refused to unlock a cell phone used by a terrorist who killed 14 people in California. Devin Patrick Kelley, the man who entered the Baptist church and threw the believers on Sunday (5), was facing difficulties ahead of the investigation. According to the Washington Post, the device is an iPhone. In a statement distributed to the press, Apple said: “Our team immediately approached the FBI after hearing from a press conference Tuesday that investigators are trying to access a phone. We offered assistance and said we would respond promptly to any legal process they had. ”
The company did not say, but left in between that if it had been contacted earlier, the problem could have been solved more easily: “We work with legal cases every day. We offer training to thousands of agents to understand our handsets and how they can quickly request information from Apple. ” That’s because some versions of the iPhone can be unlocked with fingerprint. The feature is quite common, but lets if the phone is not unlocked after 48 hours. After that, you must enter the password to access. Kelley, 26, was killed by a gunshot wound fired by himself in his escape vehicle, where officials found two pistols, said Freeman Martin, a spokesman for the Department of Public Safety.
