The FBI's Decryption Tool Probably Won't Work On Your Newer iPhone

The Apple-FBI case is over since the bureau successfully cracked a San Bernardino shooter's iPhone 5c. But the same technique probably won't work on your phone.
FBI Director James Comey said Wednesday the bureau purchased a third-party tool to unlock the iPhone, which was running an older version of iOS 9.
It's not clear if the software used to hack the 5c exploited a hardware or software vulnerability. Comey has said it won't work on the iPhone 5s or newer iPhone models.
