    Apple filed a motion on Thursday to vacate a California judge's order compelling the company to create software that would allow FBI agents to access an iPhone used in the San Bernardino, California, terrorist attacks.

    The government has said Apple must help because there is no way to get at the data on a smartphone used by San Bernardino shooter Rizwan Farook without the company engineering a special operating system. The company said, among other things, that the judge's order violates the company's First Amendment rights.
