Regarding the shooting incident that occurred at the US Navy base at the end of 2019, the FBI reported that it was able to unlock the suspect's iPhone.
In its announcement, the FBI accused Apple of "substantially no help," but Apple has issued a counter-argument that it is not.
In December 2019, the Saudi Arabian Lieutenant Mohamed Al Shamurani, who was training at the Pensacola Naval Air Station in Florida in the United States, fired a shot and killed three people at the end of the shooting. The suspect himself was also shot, and the two iPhones he owned were great clues to the case.
January 2020, shortly after the incident,FBI asks Apple to help unlock iPhone passcode.. This statement is the result of that.
FBI Secretary Christopher Ray reports that the agency broke iPhone encryption, revealing a connection between the suspect and international terrorist organization Al Qaeda. "Evidence from the device shows that the Pensacola case was a disastrous consequence of years of planning and preparation by al-Qaeda officials," he said.
On the other hand, Mr. Rey says the company's refusal to "unsubscribe" from Apple for the unlocking of the iPhone is "a big disappointment." And even as violent criminals, traffickers, and criminals who prey on children say Apple has made a "business and marketing decision to design a smartphone so that only users can unlock it, regardless of circumstances". Apple, who does not change its policy, blames "it has dangerous consequences for public security and national security."
In response, Apple has issued a statement of rebuttal through Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman. First, a few hours after the incident, we provided all available information such as iCloud backup, account information, transaction data of multiple accounts, etc. in response to requests from the FBI, He claims that he did not "don't help" as he supported the investigation.

A statement made by Mr. Rey and his colleagues saying "there was no help" also commented, "It's just an excuse to weaken the encryption." He continues to work with FBI agents to bring criminals to justice 24 hours a day, and states that it is their responsibility to help law enforcement investigations as a proud U.S. company. Nevertheless, there is another reason why the FBI said it was “no aid”.
The speculation suggests that a backdoor that can retrieve data from the iPhone is provided specifically. "We take our responsibility for national security very seriously, so don't create backdoors that make every device vulnerable to malicious attackers that threaten national security and customer data." I believe that, "he added, adding that" there is no back door just for good people. "
In other words, once you have a backdoor tool, there is no guarantee that it won't fall into the wrong hands, threatening not only customer data but also national security. Apple argues that it is more patriotic to the United States than the FBI.
The FBI says "Apple refuses to unlock iPhone" means not only the U.S. Attorney General, but also President TrumpI was going to blame on Twitter.. The "unlocking iPhone" that the US government wants isn't declared as a backdoor tool, but what else would it do? I would like to keep an eye on future developments.
