The company explains this is not so much reluctance to help the investigation, as the fact that the transfer of technical information of such a plan would compromise the entire system of secure data storage on Apple's mobile devices, which will be detrimental to the company and customers. On the Apple side then stood its competitors, including Samsung Electronics, and the case was finally resolved in the US Supreme Court and Congress.
A few days ago, the FBI already talked about the fact that they can do without Apple's, but then the experts considered these statements bluff. Now it turned out that the Bureau was not bluffing.
