The FBI has come to a sudden and surprising all-stop in its legal war with Apple.

Rather than compel the Cupertino giant to help it unlock an iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardino killers, the Feds say they may be able to break into the handset without the company's assistance after all.

In a filing [PDF] submitted late Monday in a central California federal court, the Feds asked for a crunch hearing due to take place on Tuesday be vacated and proceedings be suspended at least until next month. The court has granted the request.

While some might see this as a win for Apple it makes me wonder what other method the Feds have and can they repeat it on other cells/systems etc. Perhaps we should be afraid, very afraid. :)
