AppleInsider podcast digs into Apple's fight for encryption

This week, the AppleInsider podcast analyzes the far reaching implications of a federal court order —one that would see Apple undermine its own iOS encryption protocols to assist an FBI investigation.

AppleInsider editors Daniel Eran Dilger and Mikey Campbell look at the issue from all angles, taking into account potential ramifications for the U.S. tech industry and the customer it serves.
