Apple’s hard stance on protecting its customers’ privacy through security and encryption is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it paints a reassuring picture for users. But on the other hand, it practically challenges hackers, state-sponsored or otherwise, to break through.

One security researcher initially claimed he found a way to brute force passcode guessing despite iOS’ hard limits. It turns out, however, that it might not be the case after all.
