Here are your Apple Rumors for today:
iPhone: A new report claims that the FBI has enlisted the help of Israeli-based Cellebrite to hack the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone, reports Reuters. This information comes from unnamed sources in the tech industry. If the company can succeed in hacking the device, then it means that the FBI won’t require Apple’s (AAPL) help. It was planning to have the company create a version of iOS with a backdoor for its use. The FBI postponed a hearing with AAPL on Tuesday, claiming it had found a third party to help hack the smartphone.
Brick: Some iPad owners are complaining that their tablets have been bricked by iOS 9.3, AppleInsider notes. A small number of second-generation iPad owners have claimed that their devices are refusing to authenticate the iOS 9.3 installation when attempting to download it over the air. Some have found using iTunes and a Mac to complete the upgrade solves the issue and others have seen success after performing a full restore. Still, some claim their devices have been out of commission for up to 24 hours due to the problem.
Cloud: Apple is rumored to be working on six different infrastructure projects, reports 9to5Mac. This rumor claims that the recently talked about Project McQueen is only one of six different projects that the company is working on to create its own cloud storage system. It also claims that the tech company has been pushed to create its own cloud storage over concerns that its servers are being intercepted during shipping and being altered with technology to possibly spy on the company and its users.
