New documents from WikiLeaks point to an apparent CIA program to hack Apple’s iPhones and Mac computers using techniques that users couldn’t disable by resetting their devices.

The techniques also typically require physical access to devices, something the CIA would use only for targeted individuals, not a broader population.
