Strong, declare: 1. I am an attorney licensed to practice law in the State of California and admitted to practice before the United States District Court of the Northern District of California. I am an associate in the law firm of Jones Day in San Francisco, California, counsel for defendant Apple Inc. in the above-captioned action. I have personal knowledge of the facts set forth herein and, if called as a witness, I could and would testify competently thereto. 2. I make this declaration in support of Apple's Administrative Motion to File Under Seal the following confidential documents: (a) (b) Apple's Memorandum in Opposition to Motion for Class Certification. Declaration of Jo-Anne Knysh in Support of Apple's Memorandum in Opposition to Motion for Class Certification. (c) Declaration of Arthur Rangel in Support of Apple's Memorandum in Opposition to Motion for Class Certification and attached exhibits. 3.

I have narrowly tailored the number of confidential documents in this request and redacted documents in order to minimize those that need be filed under seal. I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct and that this Declaration was executed on October 17, 2008. /s/Tracy M. Strong Tracy M.
