For product that is made there is another product made to break that product.  I don't know why its such a big fuss?  It is just a high profile case so the FBI took a unique approach to the situation and the media ate it all up and did the talking for them.  Whats the longest passcode you can make 6 digits? 2 words, Brute Force & Dictionary Attack.  I was gunna offer to help'em but only a fool would truly think the FBI couldnt accomplish that inhouse themselves.

Re: iphone
Yes, there is no surprise in it. They may simply bypassed the lock screen in iOS. Latest iOS update migh fix this issue

The iphone's lock screen has consistently been insecure even with any iOS updates. There is no doubt in my mind that it was simply bypassed.

Apple Phone
I have said from day 1, hire a white hat hacker, give $5,00 and a case of Mountain Dew and you will have all the data you want off the phone the next morning. I sure hope Apple plugs the leak in their OS.

Not McAfee?
Well, the third party likely wasn't John McAfee -- else he'd be bragging about it all over the news stations.  ;)

Suspension of Disbelief
To believe that they could not do this from day one is naive at best.
