Attorneys for Apple are going to Washington to testify about the government's request to hack into a terrorist's iPhone.

FOX's Jessica Rosenthal reports:

In pre released remarks Apple's attorney Bruce Sewell tells Congress that the FBI is asking them to basically create a new operating system that they haven't created because it's too dangerous to make.

Sewell writes that this weakening of security would leave all iPhones vulnerable and could wreak havoc on personal safety and privacy. Then he points out that members of Congress at this very moment may have their own iPhones and he writes if you think about it there's probably more information on that phone than a thief could steal by breaking into your house.

In court documents, Apple has said that this issue compelling them to hack their own phones shouldn't be left up to a judge, but to Congress.
