So what exactly is law enforcement using to get into users iPhones, a little toy called GrayKey. The device allows the user to extend its password attempts from 2 hours to over 3 days depending on the password. Law enforcement agencies have been using the device to tap into locked iPhones but, Apple fights back with an update. The upcoming iOS update will feature a restricted mode, which will control the access to the iPhone when it is locked. So long story short when you lock your phone in the restricted mode (a default setting) your phone access is available for an hour. After that hour, the USB functions only use is for charging purposes until unlocked. ((via)
