The Justice Department in the US is accusing Apple of making it difficult to unlock the iPhone owned by the terrorist in the San Bernardino case.
Apple is currently in a court battle with the FBI over the unlocking of the iPhone, the FBI wants Apple to create a back door into the handset, Apple does not want to do this is it would allow a back door into any iOS device.
“Here, Apple deliberately raised technological barriers that now stand between a lawful warrant and an iPhone containing evidence related to the terrorist mass murder of 14 Americans. Apple alone can remove those barriers so that the FBI can search the phone, and it can do so without undue burden,” the DOJ wrote in the filing.
The case is still ongoing and Apple has the support of major technology companies like Google, Facebook, Microsoft and more.
