Tim Cook Says Backdoor Into iPhone Would be ‘Software Equivalent of Cancer’

Apple CEO Tim Cook spoke to ABC News’ David Muir about why the company is opposing the FBI’s demand that it build a backdoor into the iPhone.The CEO of the tech giant defended Apple’s position, saying the security of the public is far too important to risk.In the interview, Cook said, “Apple has cooperated with the FBI fully in this case. They came to us and asked us for all the information we had on this phone and we gave everything that we had, but this case is not about one phone. This case is about the future.
