As highlighted by CNET, agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) tried for months to get Apple to help it decrypt an iPhone 4S that had been seized as part of a drug- and gun-related arrest.
But it seems that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) gets quite a few requests from law enforcement to help it unlock iPhones, and agents were told to simply get in line. ATF agent Rob Maynard said he tried to unlock the smartphone on his own with the help of various police agencies, but could not find anyone with the expertise to do so.

Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) on Friday said users shouldn’t expect a version of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s iTunes that’s been specialized for Windows 8′s new Metro interface “anytime soon.” Though if you’ve been paying attention to the battle between the two companies, it should come as no surprise that Apple’s dragging its feet. iTunes is an immensely popular piece of software on the PC, and has been since Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) ported it over from the Mac in 2003.
