This was originally disclosed by Forbes here ... https://www.forbes.com/sites/thomasbrewster/2018/03/05/apple... ... back on the 5th March.

As detailed by that and other articles it is especially worrying as the hack appears to target the secure enclave, even on the most recent models. And Cellebrite claims it can offer the same capability. Apple will be all over this (I'm sure) as once the capability becomes common knowledge (more or less now) less ethical parties will start to determine how this is conducted putting all iPhone/iOS users at risk (rather than just those that have law enforcement interest.)
