FBI released photos of the San Bernardino mass shooters Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.

On Tuesday, a U.S. magistrate ordered Apple to help the Federal Bureau of Investigation hack into an iPhone belonging to one of the shooters in San Bernardino, California.

In response, Apple chief executive Tim Cook called the order is "chilling" and said it is essentially asking the U.S. tech giant to "hack" its own users.

In a letter to customers on Wednesday, Cook said that he opposes the court order, explaining that the move is "dangerous."

What do you think? Is Apple right, or is the government?
