According to Union Minister Rajiv Chandrashekhar, Apple, the manufacturer of iPhones, has not yet responded to the opposition party leaders' hacking alert clearly and concisely. He claimed that five months have passed while the government has been waiting on Apple's answer.

Opposition leaders received a notice from Apple alerting them to the hacking of their phones. The authorities asked the company for clarification on this. According to Rajeev Chandrashekhar, Apple has been questioned twice by the government. The first concerns their equipment's security, and the second concerns the rationale behind alerting the opposition members in such a manner. We are also asking the company whether your phone is unsafe? The answer to this is not entirely clear.

Many leaders of opposition parties had claimed in October that they had received an alert from Apple that government agencies were hacking their phones. Those who made this claim included Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, party leaders Shashi Tharoor, Pawan Kheda, KC Venugopal, Supriya Shrinet, TS Singhdev and Bhupinder S Hooda.
