Steve Wozniak Gives His Two Cents On The Apple Versus FBI Battle On ‘Conan’

Subscribe to UPROXX

The legendary Steve Wozniak co-founded Apple with Steve Jobs in a garage in the late ’70s. When it comes to technology over the last 40 years, he’s been around it all and has seen it all.  Keep in mind that the man created the first Apple computers, from hardware to Operating System when he was in his early 20’s and even though he technically quit Apple, he still has a healthy stipend and plenty of stock in his former brainchild. That’s how respected he is, and that’s why he’s the perfect person to discuss the current battle between the FBI and Apple.

The FBI wants to unlock Apple’s security and roll back its safeguards to access any data that terrorists may be holding on their devices, which is concerning to many due to its 4th amendment and right to privacy implications. While safety (and due process) is extremely important, there isn’t a simple solution for this conundrum, and it’s a difficult scenario to explain succinctly to the masses. Thankfully, Wozniak was able to do it on Conan of all places.
