Tim Cook to make his case on iPhone decryption in upcoming interview with ABC News

Tim Cook recently sat down for a new interview with ABC News, in which he discussed security and Apple's ongoing struggle with the FBI. Cook sat down with ABC anchor David Muir, and the interview will air as part of the Feb. 24 broadcast of ABC's "World News Tonight" program, which airs at 6:30 p.m. EST.

From ABC News:

"World News Tonight" Anchor David Muir sits down with Apple CEO Tim Cook for an exclusive interview on Apple's objection to unlocking the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters.

ABC will also publish an extended version of the interview following the broadcast of "World News Tonight."

Cook previously posted a public letter to customers about why it was resisting a court order to help unlock the phone of one of the San Bernardino shooting suspects. However, this will be the Apple CEO's first major interview on the subject since Apple received the court order just over a week ago.

ABC has posted a teaser video from the interview, which you can see below:
