announcer: this is iowa's news leader. this is kcci 8 news at 5:00 with steve karlin, stacey horst, and chief meteorologist john mclaughlin. steve: apple versus the fbi. the tech giant says it will fight a federal order forcing it to help investigators break into the iphone of one of the san bernardino shooters. stacey: aixa diaz is live in our washington bureau. aixa, what is the issue here? aixa: the fbi says data on syed farook's work phone could be valuable to its's -- valuable to its terror investigation. but apple says the government is asking for a tool too dangerous to create. a u.s. magistrate judge has ordered apple to help the fbi break into the encrypted work-phone of syed farook, one of the killers in the san
apple ceo tim cook is challenging that ruling. >> i think apple's concern is that this would set a precedent that would impact all of its users. aixa: in a message to apple customers, cook says software to hack an iphone undermines security. he writes, "once created, the technique could be used over and over again, on any number of devices. in the physical world, it would be the equivalent of a master key, capable of opening hundreds of millions of locks." the white house says the justice department is only requesting apple to unlock one particular phone. mr. ernest they are not asking : apple to redesign its product or to create a new back door to one of their products, they're simply asking for something that would have an impact on this one device. aixa: apple argues there's no way to guarantee the tool won't be used again or fall into the wrong hands. the judge gave the company five days to contest the order as unreasonably burdensome. >> apple could be facing contempt if they decide not to
appeal that decision to another court, that court needs to make a decision. the bureau may not be happy, apple may not be happy, it may come back to congress. aixa: the phone in question is property of san bernardino county. that is where farook worked as a health inspector. investigators say he and his wife destroyed their personal cell phones, and removed a hard drive from their computer, which authorities still have not been able to find. stacey: aixa, how exactly is the government hoping apple can hack the phone? aixa: the fbi wants to be able to try many different number combinations in rapid sequence to try to see if it can nail down the pass code. but for it can do that, it has to remove the feature on the iphone that erases the data on the phone after 10 tries that don't work. if the fbi tries 10 times and it doesn't work, everything is
the fbi wants apple to create some sort of backdoor to try to get into that phone and at least circumvent that one feature. stacey: thanks, aixa steve: pope francis is on the final day of his 5-day trip to mexico. he visited some prison inmates today, telling them to look to the future for change, rather than dwelling on the sorrow and sin that got them incarcerated. the pope spoke to about 700 inmates, gathered in a prison chapel in juarez, a border town. it has been 17 years since dylan klebold and eric harris killed 12 students and a teacher at columbine high school in colorado before turning the guns on themselves. klebold's mother, sue, spoke one-on-one this afternoon with doctor oz, right here on kcci. she says, to this day, she never saw the tragedy coming. and, she says she's spoken to some of the columbine victims.
