Here are your Apple Rumors for today:
DOJ: The U.S. Department of Justice has dropped its lawsuit against Apple (AAPL), reports MacRumors. A filing with the court handling the matter claims that the FBI was able to break into the iPhone 5c owned by the San Bernardino shooter without the help of the tech company. This news comes after the FBI postponed its court case with AAPL claiming that a third-party was willing to help it unlock the device.
Plugs: Smart Connectors may get more uses in the future, 9to5Mac notes. A new patent filed by AAPL reveals a system that would allow owners of devices with Smart Connector jacks to stack multiple different plugs into the device. This could allow several accessories that use the connector to be plugged in at once without the need for multiple jacks to be placed on the device. The various plugs may be connected through magnets.
Links: Apple has announced that it’s working on a fix to the Safari links bug, reports BGR. The tech company didn’t say exactly when it would release the fix for the iOS 9.3 glitch, but it did say it would come out in the near future. This update should fix the problem that doesn’t allow users to click on links in Safari and other apps. Some users have experienced crashes and lag after clicking and holding links in the app.
