Government asks Apple to soften iPhone breach warnings
Apple's alert in October to the opposition leaders about potential government-led phone hacks led to a swift response from the Government urging the tech giant to mitigate the impact of its warnings.
According to sources familiar with the matter, representatives from Apple in India were summoned by government officials who insisted on a toned-down message regarding the alleged security breaches.
Three anonymous sources indicated that the government went as far as to convene a meeting in New Delhi with an international Apple security specialist.
Neither Apple nor India's Ministry of Electronics and Information has issued a comment on the matter as of now.
