Apple CEO Tim Cook posted a message on the company’s website Wednesday morning stating their intentions to fight the court order
A U.S. magistrate judge ordered Apple to help the FBI bypass the passcode on alleged San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook’s work iPhone
In 2014, Apple updated its iPhone operating system to require that the phone be locked by a passcode that only the user knows
The phone now has a self-destruct feature which erases the phone’s data after too many unsuccessful attempts to unlock it
Previously, the company could use a tool that would physically plug into the phone in order to respond to government search warrant requests
Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik were killed in a shootout with police after killing 14 at a holiday luncheon for Farook’s office on December 2

Apple has refused a federal order to hack into the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino shooters, claiming it would undermine encryption by creating a backdoor that could potentially be used on other future devices.

CEO Tim Cook’s ferocious response, posted early Wednesday on the company’s website, came after an order from U.S. Magistrate Judge Sheri Pym that Apple Inc. help the Obama administration break into the encrypted phone.

The first-of-its-kind ruling was a significant victory for the Justice Department in a technology policy debate that pits digital privacy against national security interests.
