FBI May Be Able to Open iPhone Without Apple's Help After All #Apple

Snowden's claim that strategies to bypass iPhone's security protection from erasing the auto-lock function to de-capping of the phone's memory chip, though more costly than backdoor keys, already exist, looks to be proven correct. A third party's claim that the iPhone can be hacked without Apple's help has forced the FBI at least a partial retreat from unrestricted access to information.

The federal court hearing to determine whether the government can force Apple to weaken its iPhone security to help unlock a dead terrorist’s device, slated for Tuesday, has been postponed.

In a court filing, the government said it may have found a way to unlock the work phone of Syed Rizwan Farook, who with his wife shot and killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif., in December. The government has previously said it explored alternate methods but would not be able to unlock the iPhone without Apple’s help. The case is not dead; the Federal Bureau of Investigation must still test the plan and will report back to the court April 5.
