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.
I’m very glad that Apple is at the forefront of this problem. Too many clueless politicians have been opining about encryption without much understanding of what would happen if manufacturers were required to build backdoors into their operating systems.
