For $15,000, GrayKey promises to crack iPhone passcodes for police

A little-known Atlanta, Ga.-based tech outfit appeared seemingly out of nowhere this month with a bold claim -- that it can crack the passcodes on even the most recent iPhones, a feat managed by only a select few.

Grayshift wasn't widely known until Forbes blew the lid on the company earlier this month -- likely because the company's main clientele are police departments and local law enforcement divisions.

The company is founded by Justin Fisher (whose LinkedIn profile currently only shows he works at a "private company") and Braden Thomas, a former Apple security engineer, who spent six years at the technology giant from 2006.

But little is publicly known about the company, including its flagship product, GrayKey, a $15,000 unlock tool that promises in marketing materials to be able to obtain the passwords on iPhone 5s devices and newer. The box is said to be able to tap into even the latest iPhone 8 and iPhone X handsets, running the latest iOS 11 software.
