Apple has been fighting with the security agencies and the concerned with the long time now. The company is in no mood to back off provide a backdoor access to the authorities without the consent of users. Even if it takes terrorist attacks, the Cupertino giant is in no mood to give up.
The CEO Tim Cook is continuously giving arguments in support of the company’s security stance. This time, Cook used the company’s event to prove all he wanted to. Usually, the cool Apple events are started with the new products paired with awesome features. This time, unfortunately, Cook had to use the platform to reveal all that he wanted regarding the company’s tiff with the security agencies.
Tim Cook is adamant on his stance of not giving up and his statement just exactly proves this;
“This is an issue that impacts all of us, and we will not shrink from this responsibility”.
It must be noted that the Cupertino Company is under lots of hot water for its decision. It is fighting the hardest battle of the century. And, sticking to the point could have lot of negative impact and influence on the reputation. This is also possible that the future is going to be very tough for both the digital sector and the US security agencies.
To those who are unaware of the situation, Apple was ordered on 16th February to design a custom version of its iOS software to help the FBI unlock an iPhone 5C related to December’s San Bernardino, California, mass shooting. The company has been arguing that the request is baseless and hundreds and millions of iPhones will face a breach in security due to this. The US Justice Department replied that Apple is motivated more to protect its brand and will weaken the government’s ability to fight criminals and terrorists.
Tim Cook, on Monday, cheered all the supporters for their devotion;
“I’ve been humbled and deeply grateful for the outpouring of support we’ve received from Americans all across the country.”
Apple, on Tuesday, 22nd February will stand against a Riverside, California, courtroom, where it will have to argue why it shouldn’t be forced to lose the security. It remains to be soon what courtroom drama will we have to see tomorrow.
