So lets say the can access telegram messages, whatsapp, messages, facebook messenger, signal, you name it. So what? What counter terrorism does it solves? Terrorist have enough money to create an app like that and simply share it between them privately. Maybe they even have that app. What the hell they are going to do then? WHAT? Ask terrorist to give them the encryption key? Gime me a break!
Dropping the "real gun" emoji for a water gun is the most absurd thing. Nobody is going to change its way of thinking because an emoji. And a water gun doesn't translate the same message, even if it is only a joke (like 99.9% of the time it is used). I think some guys at Apple are way too sensitive and distracted.
Well, if that's how they think then iMessage and Facetime are doomed then. And I'm not being sarcastic. That is a classic "Apple of the 90's" point of view. Communication services/apps as more open the better. People wants a service to talk to everybody, there's zero positive points in closing the garden on this respect. Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger and Telegram are really happy to hear that.
