With the Apple V.S. the FBI case becoming more of a hot topic in recent news, Howard Stern gave his stance on the situation during his SiriusXM radio show.

Apple has been resisting a warrant issued by the U.S. Justice Department, which orders them to unlock the encrypted information on the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone. The company is afraid of what it could mean for user privacy in the future in a wider manner.

"Howard said he was thinking about this San Bernardino shooting couple. He said we live in the time of terrorists," according to MarksFriggin.

"Howard said he's going to give his ruling today. Howard said they said there is information on this device that could lead to the capture of terrorists that are trying to kill citizens of the United States."

Stern believes that the compromise can be unlocking this device without unlocking other phones. He said that it's ultimately for the good of other people and believes that Apple should comply with the court order.

"Howard said there is no indication that this information would be used for the wrong reasons. Howard said he wants to see the government going after terrorists.

Robin said that it could set a precedent for other countries to demand the same thing. Howard said that it has to go through court orders," according to MF.

Stern feels that for the greater good of society, law enforcement should be able to get into the mobile devices.

The Stern Show made a poll out of the topic and asked it's listeners opinions on whether or not Apple should comply with the FBI. What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments section below.
