The litigation between Apple and the FBI has not done more than comment
The United States Department of Justice plans to launch a legal battle against the Cupertino company, in alliance with the complaints that the FBI has been showing in recent years regarding the “security” of the iPhone. As you well know if you have been reading us until now, the unfortunately known as “Pensacola attack” led to significant controversy because the perpetrator used several iPhones and they were encrypted, which made it possible to access the data that the terrorist stored inside. Apple is preparing its legal department to take on the FBI and the Attorney General of the United States of America in this Pensacola bombing case.
National security comes first in the United States, and according to The New York Times, the Trump administration is exerting strong pressure regarding this event and the consequent investigations, something that is already in the limelight in Apple’s offices. In addition, recently Donald Trump, who governs by tweeting, has left us with another surprise that is clearly an indication of what he hopes to achieve in his lawsuit against Apple. The President firmly believes that companies should unlock all seized terminals.
We are helping Apple all of the time on TRADE and so many other issues, and yet they refuse to unlock phones used by killers, drug dealers and other violent criminal elements. They will have to step up to the plate and help our great Country, NOW! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

In this order of things, the problem lies in the fact that Apple uses an encryption that not even the company itself can “decrypt”, and the only way to access the iPhone would be by placing a back door, which would give rise to future security flaws if those accesses are known by people outside the administrations of justice. For this reason, and because incidentally we would find our terminals involved in an important “Big Brother” in the purest USA style. The judicial war between Apple and the FBI has just reignited in a way we couldn’t have imagined before.
