Can someone tell me if an iPhone XS Max running iOS 13 with an unknown 4-digit passcode can be forensically unlocked and examined for deleted SMS and iMessages?

I think there is a way for unlocking it up to iOS 13.5, but it takes some time and costs some money.

Once unlocked, FFS acquisition is possible using the unc0ver jailbrake.

@passcodeunlock Wouldn’t encryption then be the next problem?

Jailbrake means full root access, so no, encryption wouldn't be a problem for doing a full filesystem acquisition!

@passcodeunlock Ok and your sure that method would work on the iPhone XS Max with iOS 13.5?

Yes, once the device is open and jailbroken, FFS is possible, I'm sure about that.

@passcodeunlock Ok thank you. And would this method be able to recover all deleted SMS/iMessage and safari history?

I'm not from the weather channel to predict things.

The only way to find out is actually trying it ?!
