According to reports, Apple is about to release a small-screen iPhone just a day before the big American company is scheduled to face-off with the FBI over the request to crack the iPhone of one of the terrorists from the San Bernardino attack. It seems that Apple has chosen to release the new mini iPhone on March 21, 2016.
We’re not sure why Apple has decided to push the release date of this upcoming device, since now it has to deal with the FBI and assist the government in unlocking an iPhone that was used by Syed Farook, one of the terrorists in the San Bernardino massacre, where 14 people have died and 22 have been wounded.
However, when the FBI requested Apple to unlock the phone, the users started to worry and they made it clear that they want their privacy to be protected. Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, said that unlocking the device that was owned by Syed Farook will most likely be bad for America.
During an interview with ABC News, Cook said that if the company knew a way to get the information from the mobile device that would not expose hundreds of millions of other people, they would do it without any problems. However, by doing this, they think that the others will be put at risk. It seems that many people understood that by unlocking that device, this would jeopardize the safety of encryption and security technology which protects airports, hospitals etc.
However, let’s go back to the iPhone 5SE, which will most likely be released next month. According to MacRumors, the upcoming device will sport a primary camera of 12MP and a secondary one of 8MP. The handset will come with specifications such as: an A9 chipset, NFC for Apple Pay, Bluetooth 4.2, Live Photos support, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and a non-removable battery of 1642 mAh. However, the 3D Touch feature will most likely remain exclusive for the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, for now.
