Recently, many media websites published reports of allegation on the NSA’a access to iPhones via alleged “DROPOUTJEEP” program, that could have led them to access users’ data without authorization by getting a key to all user information handed over by Apple.
Well Apple immediately responded immediately that those allegation wasn’t true, in fact, it said that it never worked with NSA to provide iPhone’s backdoor access. Again, in an interview with ABC news, Apple CEO Tim Cook has denied the allegations and didn’t take kindly to these rumors.
Tim Cook also said that Apple has been “pushing very, very hard” for consumers to get access to the company’s inner practices. He said the following statement:
“Much of what has been said isn’t true. There is no back door. The government doesn’t have access to our servers. They would have to cart us out in a box for that — and that just will not happen. We feel that, strongly about it.”
That means, the company is pleading its innocence, but we need all-things-encrypted like what it revealed for its iMessage. Will Apple brings encryption to all its communication services in its iDevices?
