BuzzFeed reports that Apple has unveiled several new features at their annual developer conference.
These included iOS 12, the latest version of the iPhone and iPad operating systems.
It also introduced tools to break users' iPhone addictions "Memojis," and group FaceTime.
But most controversial of all was a feature that blocks police downloads from locked iPhones.
The new security feature is included in the upcoming update and is called USB Restricted Mode.
The feature would prevent firms from gaining access to locked devices.
With the Mode on, users must enter a passcode hourly to maintain a USB data transfer.
It was designed in part for users in countries where phones are easily obtained by police and criminals.
Apple said it would provide law enforcement 24/7 help dedicated to assisting with information requests.
“We have the greatest respect for law enforcement, and we don’t design our security improvements to frustrate their efforts to do their jobs." Apple Statement
