FBI paid under $1 million to unlock San Bernardino iPhone: sources

An Apple iPhone 5c is on display at the Apple Retail Store in Manhattan, New York(This version of the story corrects paragraph 3 to $ 1.3 million instead of $ 1.3 billion.) By Mark Hosenball WASHINGTON (Reuters) -- The FBI paid under $ 1 million for the technique used to unlock the iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters -- a figure smaller than the $ 1.3 million the agency's chief initially indicated the hack cost, several U.S. government sources said on Thursday. The Federal Bureau of Investigation will be able to use the technique to unlock other iPhone 5C models running iOS 9 -- the specifications of the shooter's phone -- without additional payment to the contractor who provided it, these people added. FBI Director James Comey last week said the agency paid more to get into the iPhone than he will make in the remaining seven years and four months he has in his job, suggesting the hack cost over $ 1.3 million, based on his annual salary.
