Expert Helped LA Police Hack Apple iPhone

Last month it was supposedly "impossible" to hack an iPhone, this month they are getting hacked by every police department on the planet.

The successful hack of the iPhone 5s in the Los Angeles case is another sign U.S. authorities are turning to third-party contractors to unlock smartphones rather than relying on manufacturers like Apple Inc (AAPL.O), which helped in the past. The third-party hacks have Apple racing to strengthen its encryption technology. Los Angeles police gained access to the iPhone of April Jace, the wife of "The Shield" actor Michael Jace, who is accused of shooting her to death, at their home in May 2014.
