A day ahead of a court hearing over his refusal of a government order to hack the iPhone, Apple chief executive Tim Cook says the company "will not shrink" from the responsibility to help protect data and privacy.
Cook leads off the company's spring product presentation at Apple headquarters in Cupertino, California, with remarks about the company's ongoing legal battle over encryption, set for a showdown in federal court Tuesday.
"We need to decide as a nation how much power the government should have over our data and over our privacy," he says.
"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 protect our data and our privacy," he says.
