You know the iPhone used by the San Bernardino terrorist that has been creating all the controversy because the FBI can’t unlock it and Apple refuses to? Yeah that one. Well, it looks like the FBI is turning to an Israeli company to open it.
Israel’s Cellebrite, a provider of mobile forensic software, is helping the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation’s attempt to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino, California shooters, the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported on Wednesday.
If Cellebrite succeeds, then the FBI will no longer need the help of Apple Inc, the Israeli daily said, citing unnamed industry sources.
I’m pro-Israel and all but come on America. Where is the home-grown ingenuity? We can do better than that.
