The FBI previously worked with Cellebrite to unlock the San Bernardino iPhone and now the company is claiming that it can unlock Apple’s latest devices like the iPhone X.
According to a recent report by Forbes, Cellebrite is telling its customers that its engineers are capable of bypassing the security on Apple’s latest iPhones, this includes the iPhone X and any device running Apple’s iOS 11.
According to the report, Cellebrite were able to bypass the security on Apple’s iPhone X as early as November of last year. The company has not publicized that it is capable of breaking into these iOS 11 devices.
The company works with law enforcement to unlock devices, the law enforcement have to send the device to Cellebrite to have it unlocked, it is then apparently sent back unlocked. The company is apparently keeping its latest method of unlocking the devices under wraps. If Apple find out what exploit is used then they would be able to fix it, this is apparently why the exploit is being kept under wraps.
