On December 2, 2015 14 people were killed and 22 were injured in a shooting at a training event at San Bernardino County Department of Public Health in California. The shooting ended when the shooters were shot and killed by police officers. Right before the killers were shot by police officers, they both pledged allegiance to ISIS.

Now 2 months later, the FBI has found the iPhone of one of the alleged killers. However, the killer had a password on his phone which prohibits the FBI from gaining access to the phone. If the FBI tried to guess the password to the phone and gets it wrong ten times hen phone will essentially erase all of its data. So the FBI has asked Apple, creator of the iPhone to create a software to help the FBI get an unlimited amount of tries to unlock the phone. Apple is not cooperating. Apple refuses to create the universal, “back door” because Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook says it would, “threaten the security of our customers.”

At Cape, Apple products are a common piece of technology that’s found in just about every classroom in the school. Students use their iPads and the teachers use the Mac Books. “I think that if the FBI took away the Apple product it would be no big deal. Mainly because we just started using iPads last year. So it would be no big deal if we got them taken away.” Anna Ives-Michener said.
