It looks like the FBI had to turn to professional hackers to get into the iPhone belonging to one of the San Bernardino shooters, according to a report from The Washington Post.
FBI Director James Comey already said the FBI "purchased a tool" to get into the iPhone.
It was widely speculated the tool came from an Israeli mobile forensics company called Cellebrite.
