Apple Again Rejects Idea of iPhone Backdoor
The FBI and the US Department of Justice are said to be looking into new ways to obtain access to devices sold in the United States, a plan that Apple has already rejected several times.
In a new interview with the New York Times, Craig Federighi reiterates the words of several Apple officials who said on multiple occasions before that offering access to devices could compromise the security of everyone.
“Proposals that involve giving the keys to customers’ device data to anyone but the customer inject new and dangerous weaknesses into product security,” he said. “Weakening security makes no sense when you consider that customers rely on our products to keep their personal information safe, run their businesses or even manage vital infrastructure like power grids and transportation systems.”
