Apple Has Blocked Law Enforcement From Using the GrayKey Forensic Hacking Tool

The Infinite Brief
Apple’s latest iteration of iOS has reportedly blocked the GrayKey hacking device, which is often used by law enforcement to break into locked iPhones. 

According to the report, the $15,000 tool made by a shadowy company called Grayshift is now only capable of performing a “partial extraction” of data, meaning it can pull a few unencrypted files and some metadata that’s virtually worthless.

It’s still unclear what exact change could have been made to shut GrayKey out.
