The release of the final version of iOS 8 marked the start of major changes to Apple's mobile platform. And not just in the area of issues such as convergence with OS X or opening their APIs, but in the area of privacy and security.
In fact, these changes may be more relevant for many users: to date Apple could be forced to give data users (or help unlock and decrypt) if it received a court order but on iOS in August that changes radically. Apple literally washes his hands, and that only the owner of the device and its use of passwords and lock codes will be able to provide that information. The Cupertino company could decipher that information before judicial requests, but iOS 8 no longer be able to do so.
