The FBI hasn't found anything that it can use on the newly unlocked iPhone that was tied to the San Bernardino terrorist. The law enforcement agency is still looking through the phone and analyzing any information they can get from the Apple iPhone 5C that was used by Syed Farook, according to CBS News. Farook was one of the two shooters involved in a December 2015 attack that left 14 people dead and more injured.

The iPhone has been in the news lately because it was at the center of a legal battle between Apple and the government earlier this year. The government wanted Apple to write new software to unlock the phone and make the data readable. However, Apple refused because they thought it would put Apple account users, especially those with iPhones, at risk.

Technology companies and privacy advocates sided with Apple. Law enforcement argues that they needed help with the criminal investigations. As we reported yesterday, they eventually hired a third party to unlock the phone.

While the technique used to unlock the phone may never be made public, the third party that created teh method for unlocking it is the legal owner of it.

The administration used a procedure called the Vulnerabilities Equities Process to look for technology flaws and discuss which should be made public. Still, the third party does not have to reveal how they hacked the phone because the flaws were found by a private company.

According to some reports, the FBI themselves don't know how the third party cracked the software.
