In October 2015, the District Court of the Eastern District of New York, Apple’s representatives explained why the company would not unlock the phone of Jun Feng, pleaded guilty for selling narcotic substances. Apple is not just in favor of retaining the information of its clients, but even opposes against extradition of drug dealer’s information.

Published protocol of the District Court of the Eastern District of New York tells us why Apple ignores the requests of the prosecutors to unlock the phone of Jun Feng. Feng was the owner of the iPhone 5S with iOS 7 operating system. Feng’s phone was configured to erase all data if unsuccessful attempts to enter the code exceeds ten.

At this time Apple stubbornly asserted at the hearing that in the future will not perform such tasks. Moreover, iOS 8 and iOS 9 are impossible to crack even by the company itself, saying Apple lawyers. In response, prosecutors reminded about 70 orders of viewing data on the suspects’ phones, which were fulfilled by Apple. According to the company, it had other cases, because then, the Government requested assistance of technical support.

The protection of users’ data is part of a business model of Apple.

“Apple is more occupied by their own perception of the public, than finding the perpetrators” – said one of the lawyers.

A short time after these hearings CEO Tim Cook spoke in support of personal data protection and encryption system and refused to provide encryption keys to the Obama’s administration. If there will be a loophole for special services, it will be used by the criminals as well.
