Tim Cook: 'We will not shrink from this responsibility'
We built the iPhone for you, our customers.
And we know that it is a deeply personal device.
For many of us, the iPhone is an extension of ourselves.
About a month ago, we asked Americans across the country to join in a conversation.
We need to decide as a nation how much power the government should have over our data and over our privacy.
I've been humbled and deeply grateful for the outpouring of support that we've received from Americans across the country from all walks of life.
We did not expect to be in this position, at odds with our own government But we believe strongly that we have a responsibility to help you protect your data, and protect your privacy.
We owe it to our customers, and we owe it to our country.
This an issue that impacts all of us.
And we will not shrink from this responsibility.
