Apple Vs FBI – Should They Unlock The Phone?

Over the past few weeks, a giant story has overtaken the internet, pitting one of our favorite tech giants against the government. If you haven’t heard, one of the shooters from the San Bernardino shooting had an iPhone that is locked and the FBI has asked Apple to unlock it for them.

Because of the encryption that Apple uses to keep the data on the iPhone secure, that won’t be possible without Apple creating a new version of iOS that includes a backdoor, allowing them to bypass the encryption, which could then allow anyone to gain access into any iPhone, which is something that Apple has vowed not to allow, calling it a cancer in one interview.

While public opinion the matter can be divided, many large tech companies, including Google, Amazon, Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, and many more are siding with Apple, saying that the government should not be able to force them to unlock the phone.

Many of us here at TechInform also stand with Apple, believing that the government should not have that power. There is a lot of information on a smartphone that shouldn’t be allowed to enter into the wrong hands.

We’ll do our best to continue to keep you informed on this case as more information becomes available. In the mean time, we’d like to know, what are your thoughts on this case?
