Apple and the FBI are locked in controversy. Why? Recent models of the iPhone encrypt the data on the phone. Recently the FBI filed a court order compelling Apple to unlock an iPhone used by Tashfeen Malik. He was one of the San Bernardino shooters that resulted in 14 dead.
Apple CEO responded with an open letter “A Message to Our Customers” stating why he and Apple oppose the order. This is an important issue. I have pulled a few of the current articles and included links below.
Everyone needs to understand what the impact is of this order.
Personally I agree with Apple.
