Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak told Conan O’Brien that he supports the Cupertino, Calif. firm in its ongoing legal battle with the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
“What if China says, ‘Apple, you’ve got to give us a back door so we can get into any phone, even your government officials’ iPhones, and inspect them any time.’ That’s wrong.”
Wozniak is a founding member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a non-profit digital rights advocacy group founded in 1990.
Apple is fighting a federal magistrate’s order to help the FBI access data on an iPhone used by an attacker in last December’s deadly shootings in San Bernardino, Calif.
