The end of Apple’s fight over the FBI’s demand that the company give the agency access to what’s inside the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino terrorists may be just the start of a larger fight over data privacy as companies strengthen security and law-enforcement agencies keep fighting for access in criminal cases.
