A federal judge ordered Apple Tuesday to help the FBI unlock the iPhone of a gunman who along with his wife killed 14 people in San Bernardino, California in December. Apple CEO Tim Cook, however, opposes the court order.
"Doing so would hurt only the well-meaning and law-abiding citizens who rely on companies like Apple to protect their data. Criminals and bad actors will still encrypt, using tools that are readily available to them," Cook explained.
Cook said that the FBI request means Apple should create software that does not actually exist and the company would not even be able to do so.
