An internal Drug Enforcement Administration document seen by CNET discusses a February 2013 criminal investigation and warns that because of the use of encryption, "it is impossible to intercept iMessages between two Apple devices" even with a court order approved by a federal judge.




Quote:

Police can obtain a special warrant allowing them to sneak into someone's house or office, install keystroke-logging software, and record passphrases. The DEA adopted this technique in a case where suspects used PGP and the encrypted Web e-mail service Hushmail.com. They can also send a suspect malware, purchase a so-called zero day vulnerability to gain control of a target device and extract the contents, or obtain a warrant to seize the physical device and perform a traditional forensics analysis.

I've never used iMessage encryption but I imagine it works much the same as PGP (keys, end to end encryption and whatnot) so yeah, I'll believe it. I'd suggest keeping with PGP anyway since it's cross platform and we already know they can't successfully intercept it without physical access to your device.
