...because we're Apple, that's why.
Like BlackBerry, Apple  should also comply with legal requests to  assist law enforcement to obtain data on its products. And again like BlackBerry, Apple should not create backdoors or special tools to break product security. Apple is using this opportunity to be one with the people, a people's champion  but in doing so, put those same people at risk. 

"Interestingly, BlackBerry phones are not completely distrusted. The US government, for instance, uses them with additional encryption systems. These modified versions are considered reasonably secure, and are preferred over other alternatives by politicians, top executives, and, funny enough, even by law enforcement and intelligence agencies"

BlackBerry and thier servers are still considered the gold standard by those industries mentioned above and the key reason they continue to trust BlackBerry. So it's an obvious conclusion here and backwards to suggest that a BlackBerry is "reasonably secure", are you going to tell me the sky is "almost a blue"?
