Apple rejects order to unlock San Bernardino gunman's iPhone

  • Apple will be contesting a court order to help FBI investigators to access data on the phone of Syed Rizwan Farook, the San Bernardino gunman. According to media reports, the court has ordered Apple to help the FBI circumvent security software on the iPhone, which belongs to Farook. Tim Cook, the chief executive of Apple, commented that they oppose the order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.
