There is big argument in USA between technology company Apple and FBI. The argument is over iPhone of killer. In December 2015, 14 people were killed and 22 were seriously injured in terrorist attack in San Bernardino, California. The FBI has iPhone of one of terrorists Syed Rizwan Farook. Investigators want Apple to unlock phone so they can get to information about Farook. They think information can help them to catch more terrorists. Apple has told the FBI that they will not open iPhone. Apple's website said that would threaten security of its customers. Apple also said it would be dangerous because other organisations would want phones opened.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is also very angry that Apple will not open iPhone. It said Apple, "deliberately raised technological barriers" to stop lawful request from FBI to help in "terrorist mass murder of 14 Americans". The DOJ added that: "Apple alone can remove those barriers so that FBI can search phone." Apple bosses said the DOJ was giving Apple bad name. They said the DOJ wanted public to think that Apple was evil company for not opening the iPhone. It said: "It seems like disagreeing with Department of Justice means you must be evil and anti-American." The DOJ said it wants just one iPhone unlocked and that would not invade anyone's privacy.
