Apple vs. The FBI; The Highlights

Feb 23, 2016

Apple and the FBI are currently winding their way through the US court system. This case started with the investigation of a specific attack and has snowballed into a showdown on the limits of personal privacy vs. community interests.

This is a politically charged and very tense issue for a number of reasons including; being tied to the attack in San Bernardino, a continuing lobbying effort around law enforcement “going dark”, and a counter-effort to protect personal privacy and security.

There is a lot of opinion and information being published about this issue. I’ve collected some of the highlights below to help make it easier to catch up on the issue.
