Apple Re-Programs Against Law Enforcement's iPhone Crack


Apple says it's going to change the settings on iPhones to undercut law enforcement's most popular tool to crack into the devices.  Apple will change the default setting in the iPhone's operating system to cut off communications through the USB port when the phone hasn't been unlocked for an hour.  That port allows machines made by forensic companies to get around the iPhone's security features.  The company said Wednesday it's moving to protect all its customers, particularly in countries where police and well-equipped criminals can easily obtain iPhones.
