Feds compel use of facial recognition from suspect to open I Phone X

I’ve included a fascinating article from Forbes describing federal law enforcement tactics to compel a suspect to open his I Phone X. This latest generation of I Phone allows the user to open the phone without having to use a passcode by new facial recognition software.

In this case, the judge issued a warrant allowing the I Phone to be opened. A warrant does not get around the Fifth Amendment implications of a user opening an I Phone against his or her will, as was discussed previously on this blog (September 16) in the Indiana appellate case of  Seo v. State, 2018 Ind. App. LEXIS 290 (August 21).
