Federal prosecutors is expected to withdraw from its legal action against Apple since they have managed to unlock the iPhone 5C of Syed Rizwan Farook. As a result, the FBI no longer needs Apple’s help in the investigation, a federal law enforcement official said Monday.

This month, Apple said the “Founding Fathers would be appalled” because the government’s order to unlock the iPhone was based on non-existent authority asserted by the DOJ.

“It’s not about one phone. It’s very much about the future,” Cook said in an interview with Time last week. “You have a guy in Manhattan saying I’ve got a hundred and seventy-five phones that I want to take through this process. You’ve got other cases springing up all over the place where they want phones taken through the process. So it’s not about one phone, and they know it’s not about one phone.”

The case took an unexpected turn last week, when federal prosecutors asked Pym on the eve of a much-anticipated hearing to postpone legal arguments between the FBI and Apple.

Apple and many of legal observers have argued that Congress, not the courts, should resolve the nettlesome questions surrounding the encryption issue.

The judge agreed to put the case on hold after federal investigators revealed they may have found a way to hack the iPhone’s security without forcing Apple to help.
