Through IOS 7 Apple responded to search warrants by delivering data to law enforcement. I suspect that the NSA probably could get into IOS 7 phones. Do you agree? If IOS 7 was vulnerable to the NSA, were IOS 7 phones routinely hacked by lots of people? Did any semi-sophisticated person have access those phones? If not, then your argument that either a device is completely locked or completely unlocked fails. Real-world events are the test of the “all or nothing” argument and under that test the argument fails.
