It’s been a while, that the authorities of the United States of america (and other countries) to criticize Apple for, to refuse to assist in the unlocking of iPhones, the investigation into the killings. But a recent report indicates that the FBI got this achievement recently, and with no help from the company. The most impressive of all: the device has been unlocked, is an iPhone, the 11, Pro Max,.

The matter came back to the fore last week, when the FBI asked for Apple’s help to unlock an iPhone 5 and an iPhone 7 Plus, which had previously belonged to the author of the shooting at the Military Airbase in Pensacola, Fla., on dec.
To the president, Donald Trump has criticised what do you think of it as a lack of support from Apple: “we are here to help you the Apple all the time on the market, and with a lot of other problems with it, but it still refuses to unlock phones that are used by murderers, drug dealers and other criminal elements, violent”.
In its defense, Apple said that it helps, yes, yes, of all the cases. The company said that it has delivered to the researchers with gigabytes of data on your speed, including your purchase history and e-mails.
However, the company said that that it will not build a backdoor into the iPhone, as required by the authorities. The “master key” to gain access to the system that could be exploited by cyber criminals, according to the understanding of the device.
But, in the case of the latest, the company ended up not being necessary. The Forbes magazine reports that the FBI was able to unlock access to iPhone 11, Pro Max, in the Time of Ali Koch, who has been accused of supplying their own passport to his brother to help him escape to the United States.
There are no technical details about how the iPhone would have been unlocked. What we do know is that the authorities have resorted to a GrayKey for it: it is a device with two cables for Lightning, the bound that you can figure out the password to your iPhone in a matter of hours.
The device has already been used with success in other cases. What is surprising in this case is that the model is unlocked, which is the latest version of the device. As each new generation brings in reinforcements for the security, in theory, the iPhone 11, Pro Max is supposed to be the most difficult to unlock — may be impossible.
But since the FBI has managed such a feat, the only question that remains is: why do the authorities insist upon the Apple to assist you with this type of procedure? Maybe in order to reduce costs or to the time of the investigation. Perhaps, in order to force Apple to create such a backdoor, regardless of the company that all of the signs that you will not want to give in to the pressure.
