Guess who wants access to your iPhone? Apple? No. Google? Yes, but only to see what you do. Facebook? Same reason. Both want to send advertising to you so they can make money.
So, who else wants to know what’s on your iPhone?
The Feds. The U.S. government. F.B.I. Why? Encryption. Apple’s iPhone, iPad, and Mac have encryption built-in, build in encryption to Messages, too, and the government doesn’t like that. The Feds want unfettered access to your iPhone because terrorism.
Even Apple does not have a back door to unlock your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, but that’s what the government wants. Access. Never mind that criminals, terrorists, and hackers will use different encryption that cannot be hacked, the Feds want access to your iPhone.

My advice to you is to get on with it… Because this time next year, if we haven’t found a way that you can live with, we will impose our will on you.
Maybe it’s time for another election.
Apple told the government the obvious.
We’ve been unable to identify any way to create a back door that would work only for the good guys
I’m not so sure who the good guys are anymore, and that means I’d rather keep my iPhone locked up.
Yes, the government wants Facebook to unlock encrypted messages on Messenger and WhatsApp– billions of users, many in the U.S. What did Facebook say?
Elections being what they are I don’t see anything making it through Congress until perhaps 2021, but the warning knell has been sounded. The Feds want access to your iPhone, Mac, and iPad whether you want them to have it or not.
