        I heard somewhere else that the court order was ordering that Apple basically give access to law enforcement across the board, as opposed to getting warrants on individual cases. Could be wrong, I'll see if I can find it.

        Read the whole thing. They aren't just asking for access to this phone.

          I agree with you. Apple considers the personal and private data of its customers to be a resource to be exploited and sold to the highest bidder. This all just a show. Since the government has obtained a court order, Apple will have to comply.

          By the way, the latest Apple strategy to exploit more money from their customers is to "brick" their phones if they have even had a non-Apple repair made. This is apparently a new "feature" in their latest operating system release.

          The order isn't asking for just access to that phone. It goes far beyond that.

          yeah, I did... I see they were fighting over a meth dealers phone in another case.. If they held the backdoor technology and unencrypted the phones in question and turned over the info to the Feds, what is the problem?

          The government is asking that this single phone be cracked. It is Apple that is claiming that would require creating some backdoor access.

          But where was Apple when the NSA was asking for all of that data as revealed by Snowden? Perhaps the difference is that Apple was generously compensated by the NSA.

          Because it makes all of their phones and systems more prone to hacking. Listen, I hate apple products. But they are right on this one.
          I would have no problem if they were only asking for apple to simply access this individual phone, but they aren't, they are asking for more.

            If this were your company, I imagine many would have a different take.

            Because in order to do what they want, apple would have to create another iOS. Do you really not see the problem?

              Yes, the government is asking for the software to unlock the phones. I'm sure if they took the phone to Apple that they could unlock it without damaging the content. The government is using the terrorist attack (which some of you don't think it's terror) to leverage a way to get spy software.

                My opinion, which I'm sure you are all dying for, is that Apple is right. As much as I support anti-terrorist efforts, this is a key to unlocking a door to American's rights that should remain closed. I'm not anti-gov't, and I want them to have all the tools needed to prevent terrorist (or any, for that matter) attacks on the American public. But this is not something they should have.

                  2 things.

                  1. Apple will not comply and it won't ever happen.

                  2. Apple has always protected itself from 3rd Party repairs. If your device isn't repaired by a Apple Certified Repair Person, it voids the warranty. Always has. It's just a new feature to deter such things.
