Apple vs.The FBI – Daily Security Byte EP. 218

This week, Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, posted a public letter to his customers explaining why Apple intends to fight a court order demanding that they help crack the security of a dead terrorist’s iPhone.

Watch today’s Byte to learn more about this issue and why it could affect you, and check out the references belowespecially Cook’s Letterfor more details.
