you don't understand modern encryption either.
that was an older iphone 5c which lacks a secure element, was running
an older version of ios with several known exploits and was locked with
a simple 4 digit pin code, making it fairly easy to crack. the fbi lied
under oath when they said they "tried everything".
iphones now have a secure element, the exploits for the above 5c have
long been patched along with countless others, the ram flash technique
that was almost certainly used will *not* work and the default pin code
length is now 6 digits.
