Trump Angry over Apple iphone....see why.


The President of the United States once again lost his cool Tuesday afternoon, tweeting that Apple must assist authorities in their efforts to unlock iPhones. In other words, Trump finally got
on the encryption-backdoor train.
"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," wrote Trump. "They will have to step up to the plate and help our great Country, NOW! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN."

At issue are two iPhones that once belonged to a now deceased Royal Saudi Air Force lieutenant. The lieutenant, Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, attacked the Pensacola Naval Air Station in December of last year. Law enforcement is in possession of the smartphones, however Attorney General William Barr claimed as recently as yesterday that they are "virtually impossible" to unlock without Apple's help. 
Apple, for its part, asserted in a statement to Input that it has helped — even if not in the exact way that AG Barr wants. 
"We are continuing to work with the FBI, and our engineering teams recently had a call to provide additional technical assistance," read the statement in part. "Apple has great respect for the Bureau’s work, and we will work tirelessly to help them investigate this tragic attack on our nation."
Essentially, Apple is refusing to create a backdoor into its product. That is, the company won't make a proverbial key that will give authorities the ability to break encryption on all its phones. Experts agree that this is a good thing
We reached out to Apple for comment, but received no immediate response. Importantly, the government doesn't need an encryption backdoor — there are already companies and services that claim to be able to break encryption on iPhones and the government knows this.
