U.S. Attorney General William Barr is pushing Apple to unlock two iPhones used by the gunman in a deadly shooting at a naval base in Pensacola, Florida, last month, calling the event an act of terrorism, The New York Times reports. “This situation perfectly illustrates why it is critical that the public be able to get access to digital evidence,” he said. Barr also called on technology companies to find a solution to their battle with government over advanced encryption and other digital security measures. In a statement, Apple said, “Americans do not have to choose between weakening encryption and solving investigations.” (Registration may be required to access this story.)
