Looks like the FBI didn’t need Apple’s help after all (http://techcrunch.com/2016/03/28/justice-department-drops-lawsuit-against-apple-over-iphone-unlocking-case/). They were able to unlock the infamous San Bernardino iPhone, and now they are helping US states requesting for help unlocking suspect iPhones (good).

I read  (not in this article) that the FBI used an Israeli company to help them, and this article seems to elude to a software exploit (perhaps a zero day). Either way, glad to see that this over: the FBI got what they need and Apple can continue making their products more secure, so both sides win.
