Yesterday, you may remember we brought you a report – via Forbes – in which the publication claimed to have in its possession a classified “Top Secret” document, that appeared to show the U.S National Security Agency had a “backdoor” to install potential “spying” software implants on the iPhone, since as far back as 2008.

In an attempt to quell any speculation that it was involved in the creation of such software “backdoors,” Apple has this week released an official statement to the guys over at TechCrunch, through which the company denies all involvement and knowledge of the top-secret government program known internally as “DROPOUTJEEP.”

“Apple has never worked with the NSA to create a backdoor in any of our products, including iPhone. Additionally, we have been unaware of this alleged NSA program targeting our products,” the statement read, as Apple attempted to restore faith among its consumer base.

“We care deeply about our customers’ privacy and security,” the firm wrote, while making sure to highlight that the team at Apple is “continuously working to make [its] products even more secure.”

We make it easy for customers to keep their software up to date with the latest advancements.

“Whenever we hear about attempts to undermine Apple’s industry-leading security, we thoroughly investigate and take appropriate steps to protect our customers,” the statement concluded, as the technology giant added that it will continue to “use [its] resources to stay ahead of malicious hackers” and “defend [its] customers from security attacks,” regardless of who’s behind them.
