Locked Apple phones will no longer be a problem for police to get into. Mobile forensics company Cellebrite claims its technology can now break into any device running iOS, which includes the latest version (12.3). This also applies to high-end Android hardware.

Bypass or determine locks and perform a full file system extraction on any iOS device, or a physical extraction or full file system (File-Based Encryption) extraction on any many high-end Android devices, to get much more data than what is possible through logical extractions and other conventional means.

Gain access to 3rd party app data, chat conversations, downloaded emails and email attachments, deleted content and more, increase your chances of finding the incriminating evidence and bringing your case to a resolution.

Cellebrite is rumored to be the same company that cracked the iPhone of the San Bernardino killer. It views its technology as a necessary tool.

“There’s a public safety imperative here,” Cellebrite Chief Marketing Officer Jeremy Nazarian said in an interview in 2018. “It’s not like this is over the wire listening technology… it requires physical access. It’s not like anyone is listening to your iPhone or my iPhone. There’s nothing inherent in the technology that means it’s open to misuse.”
