An FBI win could lead iOS users to reject updates and tech companies to leave the USA, says Lavabit
Lavabit is the latest of more than 40 companies and organizations to file an amicus brief in support of Apple, reports TechCrunch.
It warns that iPhone and iPad users may reject future iOS updates, which would leave security holes unplugged.
If the government is successful, however, many consumers may not be as trustful of these updates because of a fear (actual or imagined) that the updates will contain malware to provide a backdoor into the data on their iPhones. The result is that fewer people will automatically accept the automatic updates and the overall security of iPhones across the country will suffer.
