Apple Has Taken Further Steps At Closing Security Vulnerabilities In iOS 8 Devices.

What does this hold for the future of iOS device data recovery?

Apple Has Taken Further Steps At Closing Security Vulnerabilities In iOS 8 Devices.

Apple announced that they are closing a serious security vulnerability in iOS8 devices. All data will now be encrypted and not just some of the data. Apple also had the ability to bypass the security for the rest of the data as was the case with Oscar Pistorius’ locked iPhone. The conundrum was that having a “backdoor” not only allowed lawful but also unlawful access.

No one will after the update be able access your data without your passcode according Apple.

What effect this will have on the recoverability of iPhone data in the future where the passcode (decryption data) is lost or missing is an open question for now?
