(From my own experiences having to use Apple computers, I recall that it's easy to do easy stuff, but almost impossible [and very frustrating] when you want to do anything interesting ...)
I note that, every time the FBI wants to get info off a criminal suspect's iPhone Apple says it's impossible, and then it's some small private outfit that actually retrieves the data. I suspect it's a lot easier than Apple wants to make it seem.
