Apple's war with the USA over decryption of iPhone came to halt when the director of the F.B.I. revealed that they paid at least $1.3 million to an undisclosed group hackers to hack  the encrypted iPhone used by an attacker in the mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif.

At a conference on global security in London, James B. Comey Jr., the F.B.I. chief, was asked how much they  had to pay to the group to demonstrate how to bypass the phone’s encryption.

He replied, “A lot,”, as audience members at the Aspen Institute event laughed.

He continued: “Let’s see, more than I will make in the remainder of this job, which is seven years and four months, for sure.”

The F.B.I. had refused to comment anything until Thursday about how much it paid for demonstration of the iPhone hacking.

If this price tag is true then it will be interesting to know how much other giant companies  have offered for identifying iOS vulnerabilities.
