Business Briefs: Apple, The Boring Company, Doritos

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Apple wants to protect their client’s data from everyone, including law enforcement. The tech giant will soon change the settings on its iPhones to make it harder for officials to open the device. It works by disabling the phone’s charging and data port about an hour after the phone is locked, according to Cheddar. This all started with a case in 2016 when Apple refused to help open the locked iPhone of a mass shooter and the FBI figured out a way around it. 

Chicago has picked Elon Musk's The Boring Company to build a hyper loop connecting the downtown area with the city's main airport, O'Hare International. The Boring Company beat out four other companies for the project. Musk promises the ride will take 12 minutes and cost roughly $20 a ride. 

Doritos is cooking up a chip big enough for a T-Rex. The snack line is launching foot-long Doritos to celebrate the premiere of the upcoming movie, "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom." To get a bag, you must tweet with the hashtag Jurassic Doritos, or bid in an online auction. The chip comes in a dinosaur egg inside of a crate. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross for disaster relief efforts in Hawaii, where the movie was made.
