iPhone X running iOS 12.3.2 - 4 digit passcode. iCloud backup, but has been deleted online as well have I changed Apple ID password.
I know that AES 256 bit encryption cannot be decrypted, and I know about the USB Restricted Mode.
The phone was past boot phase and had been unlocked once. However, when I lost it, USB Restricted Mode was enabled. is it therefore impossible to brute force it? Because brute forcing such a weak code would be child’s play.
Also would it be possible for a hacker/police to just physically remove the hard drive from the phone, then insert it into some other machine and proceed to brute force?
I know about the fbi case with apple, but that was a while ago. Maybe things have changed? I know the Israelis forensic team and Greykit can unlock up to iOS 12.3. Mine version is 12.3.2
Also how does Checkm8 fit into all of this?
Thx in advance!
