Apple calls BS on FBI, AG: We're totally not dragging our feet in murder probe iPhone decryption. PS: No backdoors

If there isn't any back door, why will telling Apple that there should have been one help?

Obviously they are using a current investigation to try to make Apple change for the future, not to actually help the current investigation.

FBI should develop their own tools instead, as I'm sure NSA and that Israeli firm have already done years ago.

The more expensive it is to break the encryption, the less likely it is that the authorities will use it frivolously.
