NEW YORK (AP) — Apple wants a judge to delay government demands for data from a locked iPhone in a Brooklyn drug case while the FBI sees if it can get contents from a San Bernardino attacker’s phone without Apple’s help.

Apple attorney Marc Zwillinger asked federal Judge Margo Brodie in Brooklyn late Thursday to postpone deadlines until the FBI reports to a California judge.

The government is scheduled to update a California judge on April 5 about its efforts to access iPhones without the company’s assistance. Investigators want information from a phone used by a shooter who with his wife killed 14 people.

Apple’s opposition to helping the government get phone data in the California attack and in a Brooklyn drug case has prompted a national debate over digital privacy rights and national security.
