A new Pew study finds that 51 percent of Americans believe that Apple should help the Federal Bureau of Investigation unlock the iPhone of Syed Rizwan Farook, who along with his wife, killed 14 people in San Bernardino in December before being killed in a shootout with police.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg are supporting Apple. Dawn Chmielewski of Re/code speaks with Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti about how the rest of the industry is reacting.
