Law enforcement and government agencies, but also malicious people who bought locked iPhone unlocking tools like the system for 15,000 to 30,000 dollars GrayKey, will be for their costs.
Apple has confirmed the upcoming deployment of a Lightning port blocking on locked iPhones, and unlocking only with the correct password.
GrayKey Forced iPhone Unlock Tool
Several companies offer systems for unlocking locked iPhones, many of which use repeated cloning of the internal memory of the smartphone to circumvent the limitation of ten password attempts before complete blocking.
It is possible in this way to test by brute force the possible combinations until falling on the right one by carrying out a number of tests well beyond the ten permits.
Aware of this weakness in the breastplate of iOS, Apple added an option limiting the possibilities of communication of an accessory connected to the Lightning port and requiring the iPhone password to access its content. It should be active on the occasion of the dissemination of the iOS 11.4.1 update.
