Apple Isn’t Helping the NSA Spy on You

iPhone 5S

Apple says it’s not helping the NSA spy on you. We heard all that noise about the NSA having almost full backdoor access to the iPhone.

Apple says that it’s unaware of any such program, and has never done anything to help the NSA spy on consumers:

Apple has never worked with the NSA to create a backdoor in any of our products, including iPhone. Additionally, we have been unaware of this alleged NSA program targeting our products. We care deeply about our customers’ privacy and security. Our team is continuously working to make our products even more secure, and we make it easy for customers to keep their software up to date with the latest advancements. Whenever we hear about attempts to undermine Apple’s industry-leading security, we thoroughly investigate and take appropriate steps to protect our customers. We will continue to use our resources to stay ahead of malicious hackers and defend our customers from security attacks, regardless of who’s behind them

Well, there ya go.
