Apple’s fight with the FBI could go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court
Apple may have taken on the fight of its life in standing up to the FBI, which is demanding that it help break into an iPhone used by one of the perpetrators in December’s San Bernardino mass shooting.
Apple has promised to fight a U.S. magistrate judge’s order Tuesday requiring it to assist the FBI, and legal experts say the case could go all the way up to the Supreme Court.
Apple needs to tread carefully, however. A divisive presidential election has further polarized the country around issues including how to respond to terrorists, and Apple needs to be careful the public doesn’t turn against it.
