This is the text (if you need help).

The technology company Apple and the FBI are having a big argument. It is about the iPhone of the man who killed 14 people in a terrorist attack in California last December. The FBI wants Apple to unlock the phone because it has information to help catch more terrorists. Apple told the FBI that it would not open the iPhone. Apple said that would be a security risk. Apple said other people would also want phones unlocked.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) is also angry with Apple. It said Apple is using technology to stop the FBI from finding out more about the killer. The DOJ said that only Apple could open the phone. Apple said the DOJ wanted to give Apple a bad name. It said: "It seems like disagreeing with the Department of Justice means you must be evil and anti-American." The DOJ said it wants just one iPhone unlocked.
