We all know very well that the tech giant Apple has tried by all means to protect the data of its users, giving new functionality to its operating systems. The latest came on iOS 12 and iOS 11.4 and will prevent access to the iPhone’s USB port. However, now according to the latest reports, cops are confident, as iPhone hackers have found a workaround to Apple’s new security feature.
iPhone Hackers Have Found A Workaround To Apple’s New Security Feature
The tech giant Apple has tried by all means to protect the data of its users, giving new functionality to its operating systems. The latest came on iOS 12 and iOS 11.4 and will prevent access to the iPhone’s USB port.
It was hoped that this measure would be really safe and would last for many years to be a break. The truth is that there are already companies that claim to have been able to break this new protection.
One of the new features that the tech giant Apple put on iOS 12 and iOS 11.4 was protection against improper access to the data communication port. This is intended to protect users from unauthorized access tools.
It was hoped that this would prevent some companies from unlocking the iPhone and selling that technology. Grayshift was one such company, which now knows that it has already managed to overcome these blockades.
“Grayshift has already tested its technology in the future and said it has already circumvented this security feature in its beta. In addition, GrayKey has incorporated future features that will begin to be used over time.”
This information came from a forensic expert who has close contacts with Grayshift and who had access to internal information from the company, shared as early as June this year.
Grayshift has close relationships with police forces in many countries, including the FBI, and it is known that before the introduction of USB Restricted Mode on iOS, it was able to unlock any iPhone.
If it is confirmed that the USB Restricted Mode has been broken by Grayshift, it falls to the ground one of the most important news of the latest versions of iOS and was preparing to guarantee new levels of security to users.
