    A federal judge in Central District of California ordered Apple to assist the FBI and help recover data from the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone. However, the court hasn't ordered Apple to remove encryption; they've ordered Apple to backdoor iOS.

    The order, signed by U.S. Magistrate Sheri Pym, orders Apple to render reasonable technical assistance to law enforcement in order to "bypass or disable the auto-erase function whether or not it has been enabled."

    In addition, Apple will also need to ensure that such a bypass will allow:

    "...the FBI to submit passcodes to the SUBJECT DEVICE for testing electronically via the physical device port, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or other protocol available on the SUBJECT DEVICE and (3) it will ensure that when the FBI submits passcodes to the SUBJECT DEVICE, software running on the device will not purposefully introduce any additional delay between passcode attempts beyond what is incurred by Apple hardware..."
