A U.S. federal magistrate judge has ordered Apple to break the security of an iPhone as part of the investigation into the 2015 San Bernardino shootings. Apple is fighting the order which would compromise the security of all its users around the world.

In March 2016, FBI announced that it had received a third-party tip with a method to unlock the phone without Apple's assistance. After confirming that technique worked, FBI asked the court to drop the order.
