Apple's Tim Cook on FBI Feud: ‘No One's Going Dark'

The interview was published online Thursday and will appear in Time magazine's March 28 edition

Apple CEO Tim Cook makes his case for why his company doesn't want to help the FBI unlock San Bernardino killer Syed Farook's iPhone in an extended interview with Time magazine, NBC News reported.

Cook reveals the decision to say no when the FBI asked the company to build a new operating system to crack the phone was a "labored decision," and that "lots of people were involved."

In the interview published online Thursday, Cook also fires back at government claims that unless investigators can break locked iPhones and bypass encryption, criminals and terrorists are going to be able to hide from the law — a problem the government refers to as "going dark."
