“The only way to be certain cops won’t receive instant access to everything on your new iPhone X is to turn off its flashiest new feature, according to the ACLU. Apple introduced its new FaceID feature, which allows its new $999 phone to be unlocked just by the sight of your face. It could well be used to the benefit of police in possession of a locked iPhone, since court cases over the past several years have ruled that cops can force citizens to use their thumbprints to unlock their iPhones — but not compel them to hand over their iPhone passwords.” (09/13/17)
