A judge has ordered officials to unseal an affidavit used to obtain a search warrant for the home of a popular tech blogger who posted images of an Apple iPhone prototype online.

  A San Mateo County superior court judge on Friday granted the requests of The Associated Press and several other media organizations to make the document public.
 
Investigators with a special high technology police unit last month searched the Fremont home and car of Jason Chen, an editor at Gizmodo.com, in connection with the suspected theft of the 4G iPhone. Chen's company said it paid $5,000 for the device to someone who claimed to have found it in a bar.
 
No one has been charged. San Mateo County prosecutors said making the affidavit public would jeopardize the investigation.
