Rudy Giuliani tries to block iPhone evidence after his raid, a convict wants out of jail for an Apple Store visit, and an iPhone search leads to a murder arrest in Florida.
Here's an insight into many Apple-related crimes.
In early 2018, a 20-year-old Texas man accepted a two-year prison term for his role in a multistate Apple Store robbery ring. According to The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, this man was captured on a surveillance camera stealing from the Apple Store in Little Rock with three accomplices. Similar robberies were also suspected in many Texas cities by the party.
Last November, the man was sentenced to an extra year in prison for allegedly assaulting a fellow prisoner.
A British prisoner requests permission to visit the Apple Store
This week, a convicted drug trafficker in the United Kingdom made an unusual request: he needs to be temporarily released to unlock a computer at the Apple store.
According to the Courier, the man is looking for a chance to visit the Apple Store to unlock a device that he believes will aid his safety. The man told his lawyer that the machine is at his house, but he has forgotten the password.
The judge postponed the hearing until November.

Giuliani seeks to block evidence from iPhones
In April, Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York who now works as an attorney for former President Trump, had his home searched, and agents took some of his computers. In an interview at the time, Giuliani said that the search was unlawful because "they have got it from the iCloud."
On May 17, Giuliani's lawyers requested that a judge "bar any examination of the confiscated documents until his lawyers decide if the warrants have a legal basis."
