Finally, FBI was able to UNLOCK the iPhone without help of Apple.
FBI has been so eager to unlock the iPhone by all means, and luckily they found a third-party company in Israel who was able to assist in decrypting iPhone. This means that now only FBI and Israeli company know about critical vulnerability that will not be shared with Apple. Moreover, FBI has no legal obligation to reveal such a secret.
Therefore, this puts Apple into a very bad situation since FBI has been begging Apple to help unlock the iPhones. Now, Apple has to figure out a critical vulnerability on their own without help of FBI.
