Apple Inc. Monday urged the creation of a government panel on encryption to help resolve a standoff over national security and data privacy that began last week after the technology company refused a U.S. government demand to unlock an iPhone used in a mass shooting in California in December.Apple has argued that while it is technically possible to bypass the security features of the iPhone by building a new operating system, such a move would set a dangerous precedent.Apple said it has not unlocked iPhones for law enforcement in the past but has extracted data from an iPhone running older operating systems under a "lawful court order".The U.S. Department of Justice filed a motion Friday seeking to compel Apple to comply with a judge's order to unlock Farook's iPhone, though it admitted the move was "not legally necessary" since Apple had not yet responded to the initial order.
