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.
So what does that really mean for us? Apple acknowledges that we put very intimate, secret, delicate information in our phones, tablets, and computers. Everyone has some form of data that is private and wouldn’t want anyone to find or get so Apple added encryption to their devices in order to protect that data.
This is awesome because it means you can have stuff on your phone without having to worry that some hacker, stranger or frenemy will find your hidden pictures, private messages or the like.
