Apple says it's challenging government efforts to overcome encryption on at least 14 devices nationwide in addition to the phone of a San Bernardino, California, shooter. Lawyers told a New York federal magistrate judge that Apple is opposing giving up information on at least 15 devices including at least one in Illinois. The government has said Apple's position on the issue was inconsistent.
