The Israeli digital forensics firm Cellebrite claims it now has the ability to unlock almost any phone on the market, including iPhones installed with the latest software said to be of top-notch security, as well as tablets like iPads.


The Petah Tikva-based company, which made international headlines in 2016 for helping US authorities crack the iPhone used by the terrorist who perpetrated the 2015 San Bernardino, California shooting, published a document last month on its website detailing “Unlocking & Extraction Services” for a number of devices. This includes “Apple iOS devices and operating systems, including iPhone, iPad, iPad mini, iPad Pro and iPod touch, running iOS 5 to iOS 11,” and “Google Android devices, including Samsung Galaxy and Galaxy Note devices; and other popular devices from Alcatel, Google Nexus, HTC, Huawei, LG, Motorola, ZTE, and more.” The discovery was first reported by Forbes.


The company writes in the document, “Cellebrite Advanced Unlocking Services is the industry’s only solution for overcoming many types of complex locks on market-leading devices. This can determine or disable the PIN, pattern, password screen locks or passcodes on the latest Apple iOS and Google Android devices.”
