The US government trying to force Apple to reduce security measures on the iPhone.
A Message to Our (Apple’s) Customers
The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers.
We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.
This moment calls for public discussion, and we want our customers and people around the country to understand what is at stake.
Up to this point, we have done everything that is both within our power and within the law to help them.
But now the U.S. government has asked us for something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create.
They have asked us to build a backdoor to the iPhone.
The implications of the government’s demands are chilling.
If the government can use the All Writs Act to make it easier to unlock your iPhone, it would have the power to reach into anyone’s device to capture their data.
The government could extend this breach of privacy and demand that Apple build surveillance software to intercept your messages, access your health records or financial data, track your location, or even access your phone’s microphone or camera without your knowledge.
