Apple CEO Tim Cook will appear on ABC's World News Tonight with David Muir on February 24 at 6:30 PM Eastern Time. In the interview, he explains Apple's position against a court order to create new software that would help the FBI access the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters last December.
Tim Cook said:
I think safety of the public is incredibly important -- safety of our kids, safety of our family is very important. The protection of people's data is incredibly important, and so the trade-off here is we know that doing this could expose people to incredible vulnerabilities.
The interview will also be shown on ABC's Nightline at 12:35 AM.
Apple intends to put up a vigorous defense in this matter which could affect the privacy of Americans for all time.
