Apple and the FBI recently went to court over the San Bernardino iPhone, in the end the FBI dropped the case as they had managed to unlock the handset with the help of hackers.
The iPhone used by the San Bernardino shooter was an iPhone 5C and the method used to unlock the device will not work on the iPhone 5S and above.
Whilst the hack does not affect the latest iPhones, it does affect millions of other devices, which means that Apple is looking to fix the security flaw that allowed the device to be unlocked.
Now it looks like the FBI will not inform Apple of how they unlocked the device, the news comes in a report from the Wall Street Journal.
The FBI reportedly paid more than $1.3 million for the hacking tool that was used to unlock the San Bernardino iPhone and they apparently have no plans to tell Apple about the flaw.
