As you may know, a court recently ordered Apple to unlock a suspected terrorists cell
phone to assist an FBI investigation. Apple is refusing to follow the order. Apple says
that creating a backdoor that would bypass iPhone security features is a violation of
users privacy and could potentially be used by hackers and other individuals to steal
sensitive information. e FBI says that this is a one time, very simple request that
could help solve a case related to the San Bernardino shooting, which is suspected to
be a result of terrorist activity. Knowing this, do you think Apple should unlock the
phone, or not?
Yes

version of the iPhone operating system, circumventing several important security
features, and install it on an iPhone recovered during the investigation. In the wrong

any iPhone in someones physical possession.
