Subject: The Feds Can Now (Probably) Unlock Every iPhone Model In Existence

In what appears to be a major breakthrough for law enforcement, and a
possible privacy problem for Apple customers, a major U.S. government
contractor claims to have found a way to unlock pretty much every iPhone
on the market.
Cellebrite, a Petah Tikva, Israel-based vendor that's become the U.S.
government's company of choice when it comes to unlocking mobile
devices, is this month telling customers its engineers currently have
the ability to get around the security of devices running iOS 11. That
includes the iPhone X, a model that Forbes has learned was successfully
raided for data by the Department for Homeland Security back in November
2017, most likely with Cellebrite technology.
