The FBI announced that it has mysteriously managed to unlock the iPhone without Apple’s help and it seems like the case is coming to an end. Meanwhile, the Cupertino giant stood out victorious in its belief in conserving the right to privacy and everyone’s civil liberties.

The scenario unfolded on Monday when the US Justice Department said that it has succeeded in unlocking an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters and dropped its legal case against Apple.

The Justice Department, in a two-page court filing, said that the government had “successfully accessed the data stored on Farook’s iPhone and therefore no longer requires the assistance from Apple.”

In a statement by Apple, it said, “From the beginning, we objected to the FBI’s demand that Apple Inc. doesn’t build a backdoor into the iPhone because we believed it was wrong and would set a dangerous precedent. As a result of the government’s dismissal, neither of these occurred. This case should never have been brought.”

“We will continue to help law enforcement with their investigations, as we have done all along, and we will continue to increase the security of our products as the threats and attacks on our data become more frequent and more sophisticated,” the company further added.

In its statement, the company claims that it deeply believes in the security of data stored on their devices by the people from the United States and around the world. In addition, Apple said that their users deserve data protection, security, and privacy. Sacrificing one for the other only puts people and countries at greater risk.

“This case raised issues which deserve a national conversation about our civil liberties, and our collective security and privacy. Apple remains committed to participating in that discussion,” Apple said.

But the larger fight is still going on, the industries are formed in their views that any function bypassing the security features of tech products in order to help the authorities will undermine security for the users.
