There's an entire industry devoted to cracking the iPhone and other smartphones. These companies operate mostly in the dark, offering their services to clients when other methods of retrieving data from a gadget fail. Cellebrite is one of the companies with experience in cracking devices including the iPhone, and the security firm os believed to have inked a deal with the FBI to crack the San Bernardino iPhone 5c.
If true, it would be a bit ironic because Cellebrite also counts Apple among its customers.
