The US Department of Justice wants to overturn the New York court ruling in the iPhone case

At the end of February, a New York judge ruled that the US Department of Justice (DoJ) cannot force Apple to provide the FBI with access to a locked phone, in a drug case. Now, the DoJ is seeking to overturn the ruling, and has filed a request in a higher court, according to Reuters. One of the arguments invoked is that the phone in question runs an older operating system which Apple has agreed to unlock several times in previous cases.
