Florida Shooting: Apple does not Give US Government Access to iPhones
Apple yesterday again refused to unlock two iPhones from the perpetrator of a Florida shooting. This time the request came from the American Justice Minister, William Barr.
These are the aircraft of a Saudi air force student who was walking on an American basis. The boy may have had a terrorist motive when he killed three people.
The two shooter smartphones would contain valuable information for the investigation, but Apple emphasises that it will never unlock its own devices.
“There is no back door for well-wishers,” Apple tells BuzzFeed. “Ultimately, this will lead to problems that endanger national security and our customers.”
Earlier, the tech giant already refused a request from the FBI, who wanted to view the devices “as a precaution.”
