Looking for common ground in Apple vs. the FBI

Sewell also addressed a rumor mentioned by another witness, Indiana State Police technology expert Charles Cohen, who noted Chinese news agency reports have suggested that Apple had given source code for the iOS to the Chinese government while refusing to work with the FBI.
