Apple ditched iCloud encryption plans after FBI complaints: Report

Apple reportedly dropped plans to let iPhone users fully encrypt backups of their devices in the company’s iCloud service two years ago after the FBI complained that the move would harm investigations. The encryption would have meant that Apple would not be able to turn material over to authorities even if it was under court order.
