There is no reason for the FBI to hack the phone.
Have we all already forgotton that every electronic transmission within,into and out of the US recorded and stored in the facility in Dokota is it.
By christ people have short memories. All the FBI is doing here is training people up, and successfully so it seems, to believe the only way they can eavesdrop on hour conversation is pull the phone apart?
The FBI is simply training people up to forget about the current capability to record 100 years worth of electronic conversations
Come on you people, your not so easily influenced as that are you??????????????????????????????????????????????????? this is just absolutely unbelievable that you people have fallen for this. You have been played for fools and deservedly so it would appear if you believe the FBI has to pull a bloody phone part to yank out the conversation recording. far out.

You don't even need to use a physical chip. No flaky single memory chip to deal with once its in the emulator and you store a baseline backup. Just load it into an emulator in a VM. All you do is refresh the VM each time the device locks after failed attempts. Automate the process and press the button....let it spin until it unlocks.
Not rocket science folks, just industry standard Software Development/QA testing tools.
FBI = Fails Being Innovative
And just last week, James Comey, the FBI director, said his fight with Apple wasn't about setting precedent; rather, it was about battling terrorism.
But it seems that the storyline has changed.
The Justice Department now says it will not hesitate to invoke the precedent it won in its iPhone unlocking case.

Apple could have maintained the mystique and bragging rights of being unbreakable if only they cooperated in investigating muslim terrorist murderers.
Now it will be widely known their security can be defeated.
The US Justice Department is looking to file a court order to force Apple to help the FBI unlock an iPhone that was obtained as part of a New York drug dealing case, it has been reported on 9 April. The move follows a recent attempt in March to force the tech giant to crack an iPhone used by a terrorist in the December 2015 attacks in San Bernardino, California.
