Despite Apple's best efforts, security researchers still seem to be able to access data on an otherwise locked iOS device. Recently, a data recovery firm called DriveSavers, began to announce a new technology – with a 100% success rate, remember – which can detect data from a wide range of password-protected phones, including iPhone.
On the company's website, the current solution is effective with any type of iPhone model running a variant of iOS, including iOS 12.
DriveSaver's advertising channel is in part:
Using new technology, we have a 100% success rate with unlocking and recovering data from password-protected smartphones of all brands, models, and long-term operating systems, including phones and tablets with more complicated passwords with six digits or more.
Price-conscious, DriveSaver's solution is not cheap, with the company telling MacRumors that the service costs around $ 3,900.
Not surprisingly, DriveSavers does not even provide a clue as to how technology manages to circumvent increasingly stricter security measures Apple bakes in iOS. Probably, Apple will take action to cope with any software issues. DriveSaver's solution utilizes at some point in the future. In fact, you remember that Apple took about a month ago steps to block a solution that was exploited by a security company called Grayshift.
However, an important difference is that DriveSavers claims it will not give up its solution to law enforcement agencies. In other words, this is a consumerless solution for users who forgot the password, used up the number of guesses, or just trying to access the device to a recently deceased dear. For this purpose, DriveSavers has a protocol designed to ensure that users can not unlock the content of devices that do not belong to them.
"DriveSavers also uses strict identification protocols, in some cases requires documents that include death certificate,
Everything said, maybe this is a solution Apple will let stand.
