Israel's Cellebrite, a provider of mobile forensic software, is helping the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation's attempt to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino, California shooters, reports the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper — as noted by Reuters.
If Cellebrite succeeds, then the FBI will no longer need the help of Apple Inc, the Israeli daily said, citing unnamed industry sources. Cellebrite officials declined to comment.
On Tuesday the FBI filed a motion to delay today’s hearing in the San Bernardino iPhone case, claiming that an "outside party" may be able to help it break into the smartphone without Apple's help. Apparently, the agency is Cellebrite.
