I've thought about this for a bit.
Is the FBI trying to force Apple to make it legal, via the court order, for the FBI to crack the security for their phones even though the FBI
can already do it (according to what has been stated already in this thread)? I hope my question is clear.
Most likely it's Apple trying to get public support to stop it. Like others pointed out, law enforcement can already do this as can other companies.
Since Tim Cook has taken over he has tried to make their products much more secure, he apparently doesn't like the fact that all digital
communications in the US basically get handed to the US government for monitoring (many others don't either, but few do anything about it). Being
able to stir up public support that can be pointed too, would likely be a tool for lobbyists in order to show those in congress that their districts
really do support having a secure device.
To be perfectly honest, I doubt the FBI likes this arrangement much either considering it makes a mockery out of the Constitution.
