Last week, the government requested, and a federal magistrate in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California granted, an order for Apple to help the FBI unlock an iPhone used by one of the two attackers in the shooting in San Bernardino, California.  The order initially gave Apple five days to apply to the court for relief if it believes the compliance would be unreasonably burdensome; that deadline has now been extended to Friday, February 26.  Although Apple has not yet officially challenged the order, its CEO Timothy Cook has already strongly expressed the company’s opposition to the order, calling it “an unprecedented step which threatens the security of [their] customers” and “has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.”
