Turkey wants Apple to hack into the iPhone of Russian Ambassador’s killer

Turkish and Russian authorities are trying to unlock the iPhone 4S of the killer who shot dead Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, Andrey Karlov.

Turkey wated Apple’s help in decrypting the password of the iPhone found on the gunman following the terrorist attack, according to MacReports.

Another Apple-focused blog, 9to5Mac, disputes this report that Apple has been asked to unlock the device, but does state that Russia and Turkey are trying to crack the code.

The now-deceased perpetrator, Mevlut Mert Altintas, 22, was an officer for the Ankara police force who attended the opening event of an art gallery by reportedly pretending to be Karlov’s official bodyguard.
