New York Ruling On Apple Phone Does Not Affect San Bernardino Case: White House

Washington:  A ruling by a federal judge that the US government cannot force Apple Inc to unlock an iPhone in a New York drug case does not affect the US government’s legal action to force Apple to grant access to a phone used by one of the San Bernardino, California, shooters, the White House said on Tuesday.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest made the remark in a news briefing when asked about Monday’s ruling by a US magistrate judge in Brooklyn.
