Guess the moral of the story is "don't put all your eggs in one basket" as the FBI did, assuming only Apple could crack the iPhone.

Maybe in the end, this is a win win. Apple will try to make future phone even more secure (or self-destruct faster ) and the FBI can use the 3rd party approach as an alternative of having to go the court route.

I don't think that the FBI dropped the case out of the goodness of their heart. They just put a big hole in one of the premises for the All Writs Act, that they can get the info from somewhere else. That basically kills the warrant, no?

Yep, but they know that already. A lot of crooks aren't very bright or disciplined, and like many of us they figure "it won't happen to me." All of that helps cops quite a bit.

Maybe Apple will introduce alphanumeric pass codes too.

This has already been done.

In System Settings, go to the Touch ID and Passcode setting. Touch for New Passcode. You'll enter your old passcode, then get a panel to set a new one. On that panel is Passcode Options. One of the options is Set An Alphanumeric Passcode. Pick that and enter an arbitrary password.
