Apple refuses to unlock an iPad for an owners heirs

The BBC has an interesting story from London. Read this excerpt and tell me what you think.

Josh Grant, 26, from London, told BBC Radio 4's You & Yours his mother bought the tablet during her cancer treatment.

Since her death, they have been unable to unlock the device, despite providing Apple with copies of her will, death certificate and solicitor's letter.

Is the company doing the right thing? On the one hand, the iPad certainly belongs to the sons now.

On the other, I applaud the company for not routinely turning over passwords that could reveal someone's personal information. Some people might want their heirs to have access to it all. Others may not.

All of us should take the time to make our intentions plain in our wills.
