Security firm claims it can unlock any iPhone

In a press release Cellebrite stated that with the latest update UFED Premium, this tool can unlock nearly every latest smartphone whether it is Apple or Android.

Cellebrite manufactures and sells its Universal Forensic Extraction Device (UFED) to law enforcement, government agencies, and military, a tool which is capable of grabbing data from over 20,000 types of smartphones.

Now, an Israeli-based forensics company, Cellbrite, has announced that its new tool can break into any password-protected iOS and Android device.

The company further claimed that this tool can help law enforcement agencies greatly as it is far more advanced than any other tools available now but the price of the tool isn't revealed as yet. The company claims that it can determine passcodes and perform unlocks for Apple devices, giving law enforcement the ability to extract all information stored in the file system.

In 2018, Cellebrite claimed that its engineers are skilled enough to unlock even the most recent iPhone X. This is the same company that reportedly helped the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to unlock the iPhone 5C owned by Sayed Rizwan Farook, one of the gunmen involved in a terrorist attack at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino in California. The same is true on high-end Android devices including the Samsung S6/S7/S8/S9 and handsets from Huawei, LG, Motorola, and Xiaomi. This includes PDA devices, smartphones, Global Positioning System devices, cellphones, and tablets.

Perez allegedly shared the picture with the other suspects as they gathered at a nearby gas station just minutes before the shooting.

"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". The company previously made it possible to crack open any device running iOS 11, but the range of devices the company can break into has expanded exponentially.

Moreover, if the tool works on Samsung Galaxy S10, S10 Plus, and S10e or not, it isn't clear as yet.

Apple has already tried to deal with Cellebrite hacking products as part of several iOS updates, and the company even introduced a new feature that blocks USB connections when it's been more than an hour since the iPhone was locked.

For those unfamiliar, Cellebrite is an Israeli company, which specializes in extracting data from mobile phones for law enforcement agencies.
