Justice Department Wants Apple to Unlock at Least Twelve Other iPhones

It looks like Tim Cook was right: he described the court order as a slippery slope that would ultimately result in the government having power “to reach into anyone’s device to capture their data.”

“The government could extend this breach of privacy and demand that Apple build surveillance software to intercept your messages, access your health records or financial data, track your location, or even access your phone’s microphone or camera without your knowledge,” Cook wrote.

The Justice Department is now seeking court orders that would force Apple to help it bypass the security features on at least twelve other iPhones not connected to terrorism cases, the Wall Street Journal reports.
