Did Apple make the right choice? Apple refused to help the FBI so they hacked into it themselves ignoring the 4th amendment… Our Privacy.
FBI hacks into iphone without Apple’s assistance. According to PRO/CON: Should Apple have resisted FBI pressure to hack an iPhone? “The FBI backed off because it was able to hack into the phone without Apple's assistance. The 4th amendment was at stake, and the purpose of law is to protect people’s rights.” Apple should just not let FBI hack in without their permission and let it slide. The FBI was breaking the 4th amendment which is our privacy rights.
The FBI had a right to search but not force a company to make a software. According to PRO/CON: Should Apple have resisted FBI pressure to hack an iPhone? “the Fourth Amendment also says the government has a right to search personal property if it has a warrant and probable cause.” Even though that the 4th amendment states that the government has the right to search personal property if they have a warrant and probable cause the FBI can’t force apple to help them in their case.
FBI tries to claim similar power the president had during World Wars. According to PRO/CON: Should Apple have resisted FBI pressure to hack an iPhone? “ War powers in effect during the two World Wars gave the president substantial power to force corporations to redirect their resources to aid the war effort. Those powers were repealed after the wars ended. The FBI wanted to claim similar powers during normal times, without an act of Congress.” The FBI will try to claim powers like the president had during World Wars but will never get them because their is no reason for them to have them powers.
The FBI should not be able to hack into Apple’s software. Apple made the right choice to not help the FBI because if Apple created that software for them they would be violating their company rule and the law which is privacy rights.
