Back in the older days, computers had a reset feature inside the box on the motherboard. I am no rocket scientist, but if Apple cannot do something like that with the iPhone, they should not be in business. People need to be responsible for their own data, not expect a company like Apple to do it. Tim Cook and Apple are correct. A software backdoor would be insane. I am talking about a physical switch inside any i-device, to reset the password.
