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.


FYI  ...... (I didn't know either! ;-) )
